Learn just how easy it is to scale or resize pdf printable files so you can get the most use out of your printables.
Printables are fun, creative, and easy to use. All you need to do is to purchase the digital file, download it, print it out and use it! It couldn’t be any easier. And the best thing about printables is that you can print them out and use them over and over again.
When you purchase a printable pdf file, it’s usually designed to print in one particular size. While the original size might be ideal for your purpose, there are times when you might want to print the file in a different size so you can reuse it in a different way. Although at first glance it might seem difficult, pdf files are flexible in their use so it’s quite easy to resize and scale them.

In this video tutorial I’m sharing several different ways that you can scale and resize pdf printable files:

- by converting the pdf document into jpg files which gives you even more flexibility when resizing
