Is there a way to batch print some files (PDFs)?

You can use the lpr command. You can print multiple files using e.g. lpr * in a folder. If the order is important, you could write a shell script which prints the files e.g. ordered by filename, if lpr does not do that automatically. Hope this helps. –  Michael K Nov 3 '11 at 7:12
