Is there a document class that will order the pages for me? It would be nice if I could just take the pages from the printer and fold them. Or perhaps an open-source program that will do that after I have created the PDF's.

\usepackage{booklet} is your friend here.

See the documentation. Very flexible, with enough bells and whistles to cover most of the needs of average users.

With the addition of the {pdfpages} package, it can also be used to produce a boolet from *any* PDF file. For instance, I use the following code to create booklets from ordinary A4 PDF files exported from M$W**d documents and the like:


\usepackage{pdfpages}               %%% already loads graphicx
\includepdfset{pages=-,offset=3em -3em,pagecommand={\thispagestyle{empty}},noautoscale}



\includepdf[scale=1.05]{your_file}  %%%  your_file.pdf, exported from your_file.doc


Combined with the {fancyhdr} package, you can *add* page numebring at the wanted position, and other headers and footers at will, to a document originally lacking them.

When printing, don't forget to set landscape orientation plus short-side stapling!
