Multivalent is a powerful tool for document handling (browser for several formats as well as tools for varius tasks).

http://multivalent.sourceforge.net/

One of the tools is an imposition tool for PDF.

I have a BAT-file looking like this:

@echo off
set javarun="c:\program files\java\jre1.5.0_02\bin\java.exe" 
set multivalent="c:\path to\multivalent.jar"
%javarun% -cp %multivalent% tool.pdf.Impose -dim 2x1 -layout 2,3,4,1 -paper "297x210 mm" -verbose %*

Paths to java and multivalent will have to be adjusted. This command will make landscape A4 sheets suitable for duplex printing and folding. See Multivalent documentation for information on how to make more complex impositions.
