Currently I have a Tablet PC set up so that my customers can sign invoices and delivery acceptance form right at the time of delivery. I have a PDF995 printer setup on the table pc, along with a hp laserjet.  When ever I print to the laserjet I want it to print to the PDF995 printer.  This way I will always get a digital copy of my important documents.  Any Ideas?

If the application supports macros, create one that prints twice, once to each printer.

Use a dot matrix printer and pre-printed NCR paper. It's fast and effective. Most of my suppliers use this system for ShippingNotes/DeliveryNotes/Invoices/MasterCopy all of which have much the same information. I'd be surprised if a complete single-page set takes more than a few seconds to print.

You ask a fine question.  PCs aren't set up for this kind of thing.  I would recommend something like this:

Patrickcab and TommyTupa:
Nice solutions, except that I think that the PDF995 printer is a "virtual printer" that produces a PDF file, not a physical printer :)
below are another 2 links that may help.
