If you don't want to learn Prawn and are more comfortable with HTML, use something like PDFKit, which is a wrapper around wkhtmltopdf, which basically just packages WebKit for PDF printing. You'll be able to use CSS3 and other niceties and it'll be consistent, since it's creating a pdf. Perhaps you can do better things with Prawn, but I guarantee that writing moderately complex reports will be easier with PDFKit then with Prawn.
