PDF document creation for less

PDF document creation for less

I'll believe you're truly a small business if you tell me you're looking to save even a few hundred bucks on software.

One of the most important formats for business documents can be PDFs. They make your docs look great, and you know that when you send one, the receiver will see it as you created it--not messed up because of browser or incompatible word processor issues or color settings and whatnot.

But you also may balk at buying a full PDF creation package, which can run into the hundreds of dollars for the latest versions. New York-based tech guru Sree Sreenivasan here points out some ways to create PDFs for free, and the comments from his readers tell more ways to make PDFs cheaply or for free.
