Not sure if you want to spend the time for the script, but I use Second-Copy to monitor a folder and whenever there is a new file on the source folder, it copies the file to a destination folder. Also it has the capability to run a script when it detects a change before copying the file, so you can write a script to just print the file, then use second-copy to monitor those folders and when a new file is detected it would run the script and copy/move the file.
