BullZip PDF Printer Standard adds a virtual printer to your Windows installation and uses it to generate PDF documents from any Windows app that supports printing. When compared to the competition, this free version of the software has more features, although some require a premium purchase in order to be fully usable.

Pros

Deep Windows integration: BullZip PDF Printer Standard installs a printer driver on your PC, which makes it available in every application that has the ability to print. This means that you can now have a single unified way of generating PDF documents, regardless of the app you happen to use.

Advanced PDF options: From the software's settings screen you can change the level of detail on the generated PDFs, add author details and watermarks, encrypt the printed files, and even append other PDF documents to them.

Macros in names: One unique feature of the software is the ability to customize the names of the generated PDF documents by inserting built-in macros. In our tests we were able to set the naming style to use the document's name followed by the author.

Cons

Crippled functionality: Some options, such as digital certificates and high resolution watermarks, are not available in the free version of the software. You can still use the aforementioned features, but the end PDF will show that it is created with demo software.

Bottom Line

If you find yourself needing to create PDF documents from a dozen different programs on a regular basis, you should consider getting BullZip PDF Printer Standard. Since it functions like an ordinary printer, there is very little to learn, so you can get to work straightaway.
