Try SciTE which can be downloaded free from

It will print[*] any of its supported languages in colour, or can export to 
HTML, Rtf, Pdf &c. The latest versions are scriptable (in Lua) so you 
should be able to automate the process if you really have that many files.

Headers, footers, and fonts are all configurable through properties files 
(and I expect configurable from scripts as well).

[*] Direct printing only works on windows, on other platforms you can 
convert to pdf or html and print that.
