DOMPDF Wrapper for Laravel 5.*


Laravel 5.x:

You can install the package for your Laravel 5 project through Composer.

$ composer require seguce92/laravel-dompdf

Register the service provider array in app/config/app.php.


You can optionally use the facade for shorter code. Add this to your facades:

'PDF' => Seguce92\DomPDF\Facade::class,


After updating composer add the following lines to register provider in bootstrap/app.php


To change the configuration, copy the config file to your config folder and enable it in bootstrap/app.php:



You can create a new DOMPDF instance and load a HTML string, file or view name. You can save it to a file, or stream (show in browser) or download.

$pdf = App::make('dompdf.wrapper');
return $pdf->stream();

Or use the facade:

$pdf = PDF::loadView('pdf.invoice', $data);
return $pdf->download('invoice.pdf');

You can chain the methods:

return PDF::loadFile(public_path().'/myfile.html')->save('/path-to/my_stored_file.pdf')->stream('download.pdf');

You can change the orientation and paper size, and hide or show errors (by default, errors are shown when debug is on)


You can add watermarks of type image and text

$pdf = App::make('dompdf.wrapper');
return $pdf->stream();

NOTE: enable "DOMPDF_ENABLE_FONTSUBSETTING" => true, in app/config/dompdf.php for correct operation of setWatermarkText [size change]

$pdf = App::make('dompdf.wrapper');
$pdf->setWatermarkText('example', '150px');
$pdf->loadHTML('<html><head><title>Hello world</title><body><h1>example</h1></body></html>');
return $pdf->stream();

Methods property

  • setWatermarkImage

    $pdf->setWatermarkImage($image, $opacity = 0.6, $top = '30%', $width = '100%', $height = '100%');
    $image = path to image file *.png, *.jpeg, ect
    $opacity = values accept 1.0 - 0.11111
    $top = margin respect to top page
    $with = size image width
    $height = size image height
  • setWatermarkText

    $pdf->setWatermarkText($text, $size = '100px', $opacity = 0.6, $rotate = '10deg', $top = '30%')
    $text = text a view with watermark
    $size = font size
    $opacity = values accept 1.0 - 0.11111
    $rotate = rotation text in deg values  (css transform-rotate
    $top = margin respect to top page

If you need the output as a string, you can get the rendered PDF with the output() function, so you can save/output it yourself.

Use php artisan vendor:publish to create a config file located at config/dompdf.php which will allow you to define local configurations to change some settings (default paper etc). You can also use your ConfigProvider to set certain keys.

Tip: UTF-8 support

In your templates, set the UTF-8 Metatag:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>

Tip: Page breaks

You can use the CSS page-break-before/page-break-after properties to create a new page.

.page-break {
    page-break-after: always;
<h1>Page 1</h1>
<div class="page-break"></div>
<h1>Page 2</h1>
