Travel RKIs: Is there an "official" International

Might be taking the family to Italy, France, Switzerland, and/or country to be named later for a vacation. Will likely rent a car and drive around in Europe.
I've found a number of companies on the good ol' internet that will sell you something they call an "International Driver's License" or "Int. Driver's Permit". They say you have to also bring your U.S. state DL to use it in a foreign country. But, no two of them from different companies, seem to match.
How do I know these aren't just some crank in his mother's basement cranking out fake documents for $50 that the cops in France or Germany will laugh at as they haul you off to the pokey?
Anybody know if there's some international agency that puts out the "real" international DL, while the rest are fakes? Or can I actually use the product from one of these internet companies (along with my valid Calif state DL) while driving in Europe, and the local fuzz WON'T bust me for driving without a valid license?
For that matter, if all these companies' products are "legit", why can't I just print out one of my own that looks just like one of theirs?
