Occasionally a freebie surprises me with a feature or two I
wasn’t expecting. In Bullzip PDF Printer’s case it was the ability
to password-protect PDF files and even watermark them. Normally,
you have to fork over a fair amount of cash for these niceties.
Both features–as well as the basic PDF printing–worked
Like many free PDF apps, Bullzip is actually a front-end for the
public domain Ghostscript Postscript/PDF printer driver. Still, for
anyone to take the time to implement the more advanced features in
a super-clean, advertising-free little app is, well, great.
The authors accept donations, and if you’re as pleased with the
program as I was you might consider sending them a buck or two.
They also have a pay version, PDF
Writer, which according to the company is “superior to the
bullzip edition in some installation related matters.” You might
donate by buying that program instead.
This is best of breed. Uninstall the others you may have tried
and use Bullzip.
