If you want only printing, merging, watermark etc, Bullzip is a free option, up to 10 users:

If you want a full fledged editor, PhantomPDF Business has an editor that is far more powerful than the one in Acrobat: http://www.foxitsoftware.com/Secure_PDF_Security/

Hi grnow,
I use Nuance's PDF Converter Professional 8. It is still available for sale with a street price of around $35:
http://www.amazon.com/Nuance-Communications-Inc-M109A-G00-8-0-Professional/dp/B0084PK8CS/

But Nuance has deprecated it in favor of a brand new product called Power PDF, which comes in both Standard and Advanced editions:
http://www.nuance.com/for-business/document-imaging-and-scanning/power-pdf-converter/index.htm

Nuance is pitching this as an inexpensive replacement for Acrobat, but that's the same pitch they made for PDF Converter Professional. I haven't tried Power PDF yet, and not sure I will, since, in addition to PDF Converter Professional 8, I have Nuance's OmniPage Ultimate (aka v19 Professional) and PaperPort Professional 14. I don't know if Power PDF, even the Advanced version, does anything that those three products don't do, so I haven't been tempted to try it, but you may want to give the free 30-day trial of the Advanced edition a spin:
http://www.nuance.com/for-business/document-imaging-and-scanning/power-pdf-converter/index.htm#resources

Also, here's an interesting review of it:
http://lawyerist.com/nuance-power-pdf-advanced-better-adobe-acrobat/

It seems that the Nuance website has been wiped of all PDF Converter materials (in favor of Power PDF), but if you're interested in learning more about it, the files section at this PaperPort wiki has the PDF Converter Professional 8 datasheet and the PDF Converter Professional 8 Quick Reference Guide (much more than a typical QRG — it is a 44-page manual).

As a disclaimer, I want to emphasize that I have no affiliation with Nuance and no financial interest in it whatsoever. I am simply a happy user/customer. Regards, Joe

Sounds good. Btw, since writing that last post, I installed the free 30-day trial of Nuance's Power PDF Advanced. It has some nice features — I'm curious to get your opinion of it. Regards, Joe
