How to resize a PDF file for free

The best way to reduce the size of your PDF document is to use an online software, such as SignHouse, following these three simple steps: First of all, upload the file that you want to resize, and then select your compression method (or leave the default settings as they are). Lastly, you have to wait 30 seconds and download the resized PDF. That's it!

The best way to resize a PDF file (Online & Free)

In most cases, PDF documents are too large, and when you want to upload them to specific sites (or send them via email), you can notice a red error message saying that your PDF document is too big. In such cases, our online PDF resize tool is your best friend. The only change that our PDF resize tool makes to your file is to reduce the size of the document by removing repetitive data. We make small adjustments to your PDF document in order to get some megabytes & kilobytes off of your file so you can easily upload it on other websites. Compact PDF files are easier to use!

Efficient PDFs

Resizing a PDF file in order to make it smaller is really efficient. Smaller PDF documents save space on your disk, and they're also faster to upload on multiple websites. Earn more time with resized PDF files.

Quicker emails

You've probably had to send a lot of PDF files via email before. As said before, by resizing a PDF file, you get to make it smaller, and hence, that smaller file is way easier to send via email. More time to save, again.

Process Length: 30 sec.

That's right! At SignHouse, resizing a PDF file to any size is really quick. We do the whole compressing in 30 seconds (if not even under). We're doing our best to improve your workflow, rather than slow you down.

You don't have to pay

Resizing PDF files with SignHouse is 100% free. We believe that everybody should have free access to a tool that helps them get work done faster and respect the upload requirements of different websites.

Why resize a PDF file with us?

At SignHouse, we believe that we're quite straight to the point: we're offering a free tool to resize PDFs, and the whole process is just a drag and drop job. You can get everything done in about 30 seconds, and you get to save time that's better spent on other, more important to-dos. Besides, making PDF files smaller is free of charge!

Resize anywhere

Take the PDF file resizing software with you, wherever you go. We've optimised our PDF compressor to work on all types of popular devices: phones, tablets, desktop computers - you name it, SignHouse works.

Safe PDFs

Let's make it clear now: yes, resizing a PDF file is really safe. We never get to look at your files, and we're deleting the file that you first upload from our side in (at most) a few hours after uploading it.

No headache

What they say about us

No-brainer pricing for a small business - or even big business, I reckon : - )

Tried the product. Worked like a charm. Never had any problem + the clean UI got us. Wish there would be more features, but I believe in the team behind.

SignHouse has been nothing short of convenient, efficient and fast. Oh and top notch customer support too...

Couldn't ask for more!

SignHouse has made a big difference in the workflow of my business. Sure there are other, more mature e-signing platforms out there, but they are all convoluted and too focused on big, enterprise companies. It feels like SignHouse is on our side.

Getting documents to parents is significantly simpler now. However, even more importantly, parents aren't getting lost in the signing process anymore. 👍

"Simpler, yet does the job better than most of the clunky eSignature software out there"
"SignHouse cut down on our signing processes by at least 50% - and we were using eSignature software before as well"
"I just never thought signing documents can ever become a pleasurable experience"

Frequently asked questions

Can I resize a PDF to A3, A4, A5?

Yes! With SignHouse's PDF page alternator & mixer, you can do it in just one click. Upload your file and select the option to switch the pages. That's it!

What do I do after I resize my PDF?

The possibilities are endless, so to speak.

We offer a suite of PDF-editing tools that work to the same level of efficiency, simplicity and speed — you can delete pages, split PDFs, merge PDFs and so much more.

In our dashboard (but also on our website), you can browse through the plethora of tools we put out.

But remember: we're an eSigning company first and foremost — you can eSign your documents, safely and securely, for free with us! So do check that out as well.

Once your document is edited, it'll be in your dashboard (if you want to keep it there). From there, it takes even fewer clicks to edit further, in case you have any alterations you want to make to it.

Are your electronic signatures legal?

Our signatures are 100% legally binding, as SignHouse is built around US and International Laws concerning digital signatures. SignHouse eSignatures are on par with paper signatures, from a legal point of view!

Signing papers digitally started being equal to physical, handwritten signatures in the U.S. eSignature Act of 2000 (U.S. Federal Act) + the Uniform Electronic Transaction Act (UETA). As a consequence, laws in other countries have followed suit. SignHouse is built around these laws.

Are you adding an actual eSignature or just an image?

All signatures are a real, eSignature that is 100% legally binding.

We save important, relevant data (that can be used legally in all types of situations, including in courts) such as identifiable details of a person, IP addresses, etc, just so our electronic signatures can be as valid as digital signatures can get.

What about privacy and security?

SignHouse's signatures are secure for all kinds of businesses and companies. All our signatures happen on a secure, SSL-connected domain. Documents are not made public and unique keys are generated through SignHouse so that privacy and security are at the foundation of the documents on our platform.

How do my signees get to sign with SignHouse?

We've streamlined the signing process so that your signees can sign your documents with no hurdles at all — and with the smallest amount of steps required. It can take as little as 30 seconds! 

How do you compare to ______?

We have a generous free plan, so we highly encourage you to make the comparison yourself! It costs you nothing - and no hard feelings if you don't want to go with us.

We would really love to know what made you go with us or somebody else! If you could take a moment to write to us about that, we'd highly appreciate it.
