We’ve all been there: You want to attach a PDF to an email, but the file is too large to send—the recipient’s service provider won’t accept it.
You’ve got options, of course. You can use a file transfer service, such as Hightail.com or WeTransfer.com. Acrobat Pro DC offers some tools for reducing file size. And there are third-party utilities that may be able to further reduce the size of a document.
But your best shot is to address the problem when you’re creating the PDF in the first place.
Here are a few ways to make your PDFs smaller from the get-go.

Why do we need spot colors? It’s because humans can see a wide range of colors—some say 10 million shades—but there’s a limit to what we can print in CMYK, the industry-standard combination of cyan, magenta, yellow and black inks. This is where spot colors – absolute colors generated by a specific ink – come in to fill the gaps.
CMYK has its limits
The diagram below represents the range of colors humans can see. You’ll notice that what we can see on a monitor, and what the CMYK offset printing process is capable of reproducing, is less than what spot colors (the “PANTONE gamut” in the diagram below) can achieve. Bright oranges and navy blues can be especially challenging.
