A few ways:
Open Source:
 http://pdfsharp.com/PDFsharp/

EvoPDF (commercial)

And also you can setup a pdf printer (CutePDF I think) to print to the printer, but that requires a more manual intervention on the user's behalf.


And also here are some samples:

I downloaded the pdfsharp. Does it have a dll  that I need to add as a reference to my project. Where would the dll be? I don't see it in the package I downloaded. Thanks
