I happen to know a thing or two about printing, PDF, PostScript, PJL, Fonts and related stuff.

Also familiar with some bits and pieces of Linux, Unix, Samba and Solaris printing. Not to forget bash programming and Windows cmd.exe batch scripting. I also do consultancy in these topics.

If you want, I share some of this knowledge here and on Stackoverflow (SO). Just click to browse for all.

Export as... or Render as... I would reserve for such occasions onl where the application itself is creating the PDF (such as OpenOffice or LibreOffice are able to).

comment How to remove watermark from pdf using pdftk?
I'm willing to bet it can be done. But most likely not with pdftk... (But to proof it, one would need access to the file. It's in the public domain, is it?!?)

@kev: Your command doesn't exactly do what @gasko peter wanted. You should have used -extend 520x352. +1 for the 'right direction' though :-P

@random: Ok, 'closing as duplicate' is better acceptable to me in this case.
