RELEASE: Bullzip PDF Printer for Windows 8/Windows Server 2012 (FREE – 3rd party)

imageI occasionally plug a 3rd party product because I found it useful and I figure there are others out there that might do so as well. 

Everyone occasionally needs to publish to .PDF.  The question is, what’s the best, most cost effective way of doing so?  I’ve used FoxIt Phantom Express as well as Adobe Acrobat in the past and paid for both products.  I’ve had issues with both frankly, in that FoxIt had publishing inaccuracies and Acrobat was sluggish and very expensive.

On the recommendation of a friend, I switched to Bullzip PDF Printer partially for it’s stability & accuracy but mostly for it’s support on Windows 8 x64.

imageThe Bullzip PDF Printer works as a Microsoft Windows printer and allows you to write PDF documents from virtually any Microsoft Windows application.
