Free or cheap PDF editor

I have a client who are a registered charity who want to produce a large PDF (newsletter) file 4 times a year  Made up of many cuttings in a PDF format.

The printer used to do this for them but as it grown it's taking him too long to do and he's told them to buy a copy of Adobe Professional and prepare it for him. Fair enough to keep his costs down, but is there anything cheaper than this they can use?

Many thanks.

PrimoPDF  adds a virtual printer that creates PDFs.  Any app that you can print from (e.g. IE, Firefox, Word, Excel, etc.) can create a PDF instead of sending to your printer.

OpenOffice / Libre Office will create/save Pdf files from inside all of its modules:

Other than that, the Foxit tools (Creator / Editor) are considerably cheaper than Acrobat:

It's always a good recommendation to also use the free Foxit reader and browser plug-in instead of the Acrobat Reader, because it is less exploitable by malware, has additional features and a faster startup time.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Did Word to PDF start in 2007 or was it available in 2003.

Well it is a standalone app and has been around before 2003 if that answers your question

Oh, I thought it was a feature within Word 2007 and 2010.
