If you have just a little html experience (or a html editor) and arent afraid of the commandline - there is a free alternative here: https://github.com/nbudin/html2pdf#readme

(i do not use mac, nor have a tried this particular *2pdf software - but i think it is only fair to list *completely* free to use alternatives - though searching the web will likely reveal plenty others (esp. those "imported" from the unix-world))
