Why not make a Service with Automator?
Authored by: auco on Oct 06, '10 02:36:05AM

You can easily automate this in Automator. I have a Context Service in Finder, so I only select a file, right-click, choose the service and end up with an archive that has the current date as a postfix: myarchive_20101006-1135.zip

You can even choose if you want to move the archive to a certain directory, delete the sources and many other things. And it's really simple. If you're on SnowLeopard, 'Create new Service' is available in most context menus.
