I'm not too confident you'll find any. RTF is simply too limited to express general GDI printing commands, hence such a driver would be quite useless.

I think I understood what you're wishing to accomplish, but IMHO you should look for <text-format>2RTF converters instead. You have more chances to end up with some results.
In any case MS Word provides a wide range of text format conversions, writing an utility in VBA or similar might result the easiest and quickest solution.

If the job consisted of text, RTF is more than adequate. On the other hand if the job consisted of lots of shapes RTF would be too limited. If you have some kind of existing application that prints through Windows, and you would like to be able to edit its output, a printer driver such as the one being asked about here would be very useful.
