comment How can I append two PDFs that have links
@moose: So both files have links in them? You didn't mention that in your original post, and I don't know what "Balsamiq" is/does. \includepdf will remove those links as you mentioned, making this answer somewhat useless for your case, I guess.

comment How can I append two PDFs that have links
@moose: It seems like your options fitpaper and noautoscale are contradictory. What about only noautoscale or with fitpaper=false?

comment How can I append two PDFs that have links
@moose: Did you read the documentation I linked to? Use the option noautoscale (page 4), since page sizes are automatically rescaled by default. I'll update my answer.
