Good news for PDF users and print speed freaks looking to maximize efficiency: the team behind popular PDF editor and converter PDFZilla has announced the launch of BulkPrinter.
The new Windows-only tool simplifies printing multiple documents in different sizes – and it’s completely free.
“BulkPrinter makes the process more efficient by allowing users to conveniently batch print their documents without having to process them individually,” the company said.
Print by volume with traditional small business printers has always been a slow process – especially when working with a range of file types. It is this cost of time that the company wants to tackle with BulkPrinter.
Back when we reviewed PDFZillawe praised the “clean, fast interface and the intuitive design” – and it seems that BulkPrinter is cut from the same cloth.
With an interface designed for easy access, users just need to add their documents to the file list and click Start Now. The free office software then automatically manages high-volume printing without the need for manual interventions that slow down workflow.
Supported formats include PDF, DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, TXT, JPG, GIF, TIF and PNG – and they can all be added to the list and printed at the same time, so stopping and switching between programs is is no longer necessary.
The volume printing program provides the main customization options. Orientation, paper size and page range can all be set by the user. The so-called compatible mode, ‘Print by Default Program’, even allows users to print files through their default PDF program instead of BulkPrinter.
For those who print images, the tool offers a simple ‘Image Fit to Page’, while spreadsheet users have the choice of printing worksheets on individual or multiple pages. Check a box and users can also force all documents to print in black and white.
BulkPrinter is now available for download (opens in new tab)free – with support for 17 different languages, including English, German, Chinese and Arabic.
