Automatically PDF a website?

How can I automate printing a complete website to PDF?

I need to be able to show what the site looked like on any given date. The site is a sales tool and therefore requires user input on every page, so simply spidering the site is not adequate.

Because the site requires user input all over the place, I'd somehow need to supply the tool with data so it could be fully automated.

Are there tools out there that could do this?

Note: It doesn't necessarily have to be output to PDF, just something manageable and static.
