What do I need to do in order to produce PDF invoices with a file size smaller than 20kb?
I create invoices for a small business and I have 60,000+ invoices stored as PDFs (non scanned) that are about 108kb per page on average. I generate these invoices from an Excel spreadsheet and save them as PDFs. I've noticed documents from other companies, or even my own bank statement as PDFs that are less than 20kb per page on average.
(UPDATED 3/17) I've used the Acrobat Audit tool (accessible in the "Save as" window when selecting "Optimized PDF" from the drop-down and then clicking the settings button, on Acrobat XI). Here is the result:
Content Streams 3.48145 KB Fonts 91.98340 KB Structure Info 11.72852 KB Document Overhead 0.64453 KB ----------------------------- TOTAL 107.8379 KB
What I've tried:
- I attempted to use Acrobat XI's "Optimize Scanned PDF" settings, but I get "Page contains renderable text."
- I attempted to "Save as" choosing the file type of "Adobe PDF Files, Optimized (*.pdf)". The results were slightly smaller, but not less than 20kb or even less than 90kb.
- I've tried Web apps that have about the same effect as the aforementioned "Save as" attempt.
