seeking software to "pretty print" vcard &c data


I have a group of data files in vCard format.
I'm looking for a script or other utility that will read these
vCard files and create a "pretty print" document from each.

<idea=1>
I could create a PDF "form" that is my "pretty print" result.
I'd then want to feed each vCard into something that would
properly populate the PDF form. PDF "forms" seem to require commercial software from Adobe(R). If there are FOSS options for PDF forms on linux, that would be special.
</idea>

<idea=2>
Similar to Idea #1, except using some other document format like ODT instead of PDF.
</idea>

While I can program open-process-write against any data file,
I don't know how to do either of these output formats.
I am eager for LQ community suggestions.

Merci d'avance,
~~~ 0;-/ Dan
