    I have a bunch of files that I want to save as PDF using Mac OS X's native PDF capabilities (because it tends to generate PDFs that are well-behaving in iOS standard PDF viewing).

    So I want to make an AppleScript droplet that goes through each file and prints it as PDF. Possibly afterwards use the Quartz filter to reduce file size.

    Any pointers on how to do this?

    I would go with Automator I think it may prove to be just the ticket where you could specify finder items and make them print as PDFs and have them saved to a particular location.

    You probably could find such an automator action online with a little searching.
