How to fix slow pdf printing?

I have set up a pi zero w with cups and foo2zjs to be able to airprint to my HP 1018. PDF prints are very slow. Is there anything I can do to speed up printing?

I thought maybe I could allocate more memory to the processes that take a long time... but how would I do that?

Or maybe I could convert the pdf to ps on my mac before I send to printer... thinking if I send a format the printer likes, it won't have to convert as much.

Appreciate any advice,
Thanks.

pi zero is only 512MB. Use a pi with 1GB memory.

How sure are u that this is a memory problem?

Through the use of "free -m" and "top" it seems like I have plenty of memory to spare. At least 256 free. And I'm only sending single page print jobs.
