This is a followup to my previous comment here. I used Purple Pen to do everything for my meet. Once I had the print driver installed on the virtual Win XP, I printed to files (PostScript). Then, on the host Mac computer I used ps2pdf to convert the files to PDF. The PDFs were *much* smaller. I e-mailed the PDFs to my course setters and vetters, and printed the PDFs for the meet. Everyone was happy, and I got a lot of positive feedback about the beautiful maps, the pre-printed courses, and the convenience of having the control descriptions printed right on the map. (We don't have anyone competing with us who uses an arm holder for control descriptions.)

I did this simply by adding a text note to the control descriptions, below the control. It added minimal clutter to the descriptions and map, and was well received by the competitors.
