All they provide is a .sh file. No tarball or other archives.

This is very unfortunate. I've already written to them about this. PDF Studio is currently the best proprietary PDF editor with annotating capabilities. Mendeley is no alternative as I have argued elsewhere.

It can be installed/uninstalled though their scripts (https://www.qoppa.com/pdfstudio/demo/download/#linux64):

Linux AMD 64 Instructions:

Instructions
After downloading the installer, open a Terminal window and type the following two commands:
    cd Downloads to go to the directory where you downloaded the installer.
    sh ./PDFStudio_v12_x_x_linux64.sh (where x_x should be replaced with the current version number). This will start the installer.

To install PDF Studio on multiple computers through command-line, you may use our 64 bit Debian package (right-click and save link as) . This package will install PDF Studio in the “/opt” directory.

Is it possible to create a snap package for PDF Studio?

Supposedly it is though GitHub https://build.snapcraft.io/, but perhaps the developers are not inclined considering that they provided scripts with a java installer.
