How to print documents to pdf
I have several large PDFs for professional related reading. Its topping out over 1500 pages. I want to print it out at a professional printer since I don't have a good desktop printer.
The printers charge per impression. If I print one page, 4 pages or all 1500 pages on one piece of paper, I pay for that one impression on the page. So if its 0.10 a page I pay 0.10. If I double side, its two impressions so 0.20. Thinner book but still same cost.
In most PDF readers I'm able to print a pdf as 4 pages to one page. I have to provide the printer a final copy of the PDF to print. I don't have the option of asking them to print 4 to a page.
I was thinking the only way to get around this is to "print" the PDF to file and have in the print options to save as 4 to a page. Distiller crashes when I try it (I used copy at work on my desktop).
Any ideas? I want to save paper and trees!
