Is there an equivalent of \hfill for vertical spacing?

Did you try \vfill?

Sometimes you need to put in "invisible" objects to get it to work if there is only one thing on the page:



% An invisible object that \vfill can push to the top of the page

% Your content
blah blah blah

% Another object that \vfill can push to the bottom of the page

\vspace*{\fill}% the star version for the beginning of a page

Without a star the command is ignored

\vfill% an abbreviation for \vspace{\fill}
