How To Resize PDF Documents [Tutorial]

PDF documents retain the formatting of the document they were made of. This makes them great for sharing, sure, but even better for printing. A PDF is the exact representation of how your page will look after being printed out.

When printing yourself, there isn’t much that can go wrong. If you give a printing job away, the page ratio of a PDF can become a problematic issue. Sending a normal sized PDF (e.g. DIN A4) to a printing company to print a poster (e.g. DIN A1) can result in a severe change of quality.

Don’t worry, PDF2Go has your back. You can easily resize your PDF with our free online tool to fit the most common page sizes.
