There is also an API available for developers.   I use this for most of  my PDF needs.

I must agree with Mike: PrimoPDF is awesome. 

You can even set security options for the PDFs that you create, such as requiring a password to read your PDF, and limiting what end users can do with it. 

One tip:  I've found that selecting the Prepress output option gives me the cleanest, sharpest results with very little file size penalty.

About the only time I don't use Primo is when reports in applications I'm writing require PDF output.  My favorite reporting tool has PDF output support built-in.
