You could just use gzip to zip it up in a gz format..
For any special options man gzip to see the man pages. But from what I've seen when zipping individual files, you might not see much compression to save in size.. so it might not even be worth it at times. It comes really handy when you have mulitiple files you want to zip up, etc.
