I have a PDF file that contains a number of long columns. No chance these will fit on an 8.5x11" page, even in landscape, without some wrapping issues.

Excel has a fit to print option whereby the final product is shrunk to fit the width of the page. The fonts can get small but you do end up with a document that won't wrap when it's printed out. Is there something similar I can do for PDFs?

On every version of Adobe Reader when you go to print a pdf there is this option which does exactly what you're asking:

If it is missing then you need to update your copy of Adobe Reader.

When you print in Adobe Reader, in the print screen go down to the section labeled as Page Handling. The option Page Scaling will be a dropdown menu, choose "Fit to Printable Area".
