FlashPaper (originally known as Flash Printer) is a software application developed by Blue Pacific Software before its acquisition by Macromedia,[1] which was later acquired by Adobe Systems. Its functional design mimics Adobe Acrobat Distiller to behave as a virtual printer. Documents printed to FlashPaper can be printed as Adobe Flash or Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

It was last included in Macromedia Studio 8, and is still available as a standalone product from Adobe. FlashPaper files can be also generated by ColdFusion web applications. Adobe announced it was discontinuing development of FlashPaper on September 4, 2008.[2] The company states that "the demand [for FlashPaper] has continually declined to where it is no longer economically viable for Adobe to continue development support for FlashPaper" but does note that it will continue selling and supporting the existing version of FlashPaper.[3]
