Most people that come here seem to use iTextSharp so I'd suggest googling to see what other options there are.

I've found that for generating fresh PDF files that TuesPechin is ultra-fast. I've had reports that took iTextSharp several minutes to generate that Tues was able to do in seconds.

I believe TuesPechin supports only HTML to PDF conversion.

It might, now that I think back that was part of a project where I was generating reports from Razor. Thanks for the catch!

Why don't you use crystal report? You can put images, links etc whatever you want and directly export to PDF.

I'd recommend to use iTextSharp[^]. The type of license depends on a way you want to use iTextSharp.
Buying a commercial license is mandatory as soon as you begin activities including distribution of iText software inside your product or deploying it on a network without disclosing the source code of your own applications under the AGPL license.
