How can I combine multiple single page prints into a single print job?

For example, using Firefox on Linux one can print a web page such that each sheet of paper has four pages printed upon it. I would like to combine several separate web pages so that for example, web-page-a, web-page-b and web-page-c (each less than one print page long) are printed on a single sheet of paper.

I would like to do this without having to use some form of image editor to combine and manage manually created temporary files.

The way I do it:

  • Print all web pages to separate PDFs (single page per sheet!)
  • Use pdftk to join the PDFs: pdftk print1.pdf print2.pdf cat output out.pdf
  • Use a PDF viewer to print out.pdf with 4 pages per sheet

It's a little bit cumbersome, but it works.
