Docudesk, developer of several PDF creation and editing solutions 4 Methods To Create & Edit PDF Files For Free 4 Methods To Create & Edit PDF Files For Free Out of all the common file types found in our computing world, PDF is probably one of the most restrictive ones, while at the same time being available for everyone to use (primarily to read).... Read More , has unveiled a new browser-based .PDF document editor called PDF Zen. Users can use the service to accomplish common editing tasks for free and share them with others.

PDF Zen’s editing features include adding new text, highlighting existing text, adding comments and drawing on any part of a PDF file. These edits, once made, can be easily shared on Facebook and Twitter, embedded into a web page, privately distributed via a link or downloaded using functionality built in to the service.

While most features are free, users will have to pay to send documents by fax. Faxes can be purchased in bundles of 10, 50, 150 or 350 pages. Users who fax frequently can subscribe to a monthly fax plan for as little as four dollars per month.

Users on all platforms, including tablets and smartphones, are able to use PDF Zen without installing an app. The editor will automatically detect the user’s platform and display an appropriate interface. Owners of a PC or Mac who have Docudesk deskPDF software installed will be able to upload documents to the service with a single click.

PDF Zen has given us 500 coupon codes to help celebrate the launch of its new service. These codes will provide you with a 50% discount for fax bundles or the first month of your monthly plan.

    I might be stupid but I can't fins any information on PDF Zen website about the fax service. I want to know the price and if their service is to the whole world or just to "some" countries.

      I think you have to actually look at a document and open up the sidebar to see the pricing. I don't think an individual price listing page exists on the site.

        I added a document and got it up in the page view but I can't find anything about the fax service.

        On the reward page it says "codes that provide a 50% discount off fax bundles and monthly plans." To me it sounds as there have to be some place where you sign up and decide if you want to go on monthly plans or buy a bundle. Also some place to pay ..

    Even if you have apps for create and editing PDF the online services seems handy when you use a public or friends computer and need to create or do some changes

    This might be a silly question, but what is the difference between sending a fax vs emailing a document?

      When you're sending a fax it's automatically get printed into paper while when you're emailing the recipient needs to print the document by themselves. Convenient if you know the document will be printed but waste of paper if that document would be as good as a digital file.

        Hi Lisa,
        We agree! Faxing is an antiquated technology and it should be dead by now. With PDFzen there is really no need to print anything out. You can just send people a link to your document. Anything they would normally do to a piece of paper they can do in the browser. So its a great way to go paperless for free. We incorporated faxing though because unfortunately some users are still stuck in the 20th century (faxing technology actually goes back to the 1800s!) The cover sheets on our faxes do provide a QR code that will send users back to the online version of the document. Faxing may still be around but we are doing our part to kill it :-)

          I love my paperbacks, but things as temporary as office documents would be much better unprinted. Save space, save trees, save headache when it comes to document management. PDFZen does sound very good:)

    Looks like a really cool utility! Was looking for something like this, will check it out. Thanks for the very timely article. This is going to come in handy at work.

      Hi Kavita, no you don't have to pay anything to use PDFzen. There is no charge for editing, sharing, & collaborating on documents. Its totally free for all of that, and you won't even need to create an account. The only thing we do charge for is sending faxes, but the pricing is fair and straightforward. We offer pay-as-you-go pricing as well as discounted monthly plans. You don't have to sign up for a monthly plan if you just need to send a fax one time. We just feel that you shouldn't have to make a monthly commitment just to send an occasional fax.

      Thanks for the feedback DB. PDFzen would be great for businesses looking to go paperless for free. I have been using it internally in Docudesk for awhile, its a great way to share files with customers, collaborate with co-workers on a document, embed PDFs on your website (example:, and send contracts to clients to get their signature. You can even use it to send faxes from your iPhone or iPad - right from the browser, with no software to install. We do have a free PDF reader for PC & Mac as well, it lets you upload to PDFzen with 1 click. The PC version has scan to PDF for free too. More info:
