If you need your resume printed, we always recommend having it professionally done (Staples, OfficeMax, etc., you can even order online). Make sure it is printed "full-bleed" (aka borderless) on nice bright white, heavier (ex. 32lb) paper. It will look SO much better than anything you can do at home!
Most home printers are not able to print right to the edge of the page. The space around the edge is required by the printer to grip and control paper flow through the machine. If you own an A3 printer, you can simply print your A4 document on that and trim down, but is not the best solution. If not, most professional print shops can print to the edge of the page and will be able to get the job done for a minimal cost.
To merge multiple PDF’s together (eg: cover letter + resume) so they create one document, start by opening one of the PDF files in Adobe Acrobat. Click on the ‘Page Thumbnail’ icon to the left of your screen and then the ‘Insert Pages’ icon. You can rearrange them by dragging each page to its desired place.
To save a copy of a Pages document as a PDF, open the document, then choose File > Export To > PDF [file format] (from the File menu at the top of your screen). Specify export settings. PDF: These files can be opened and sometimes edited with applications like Preview and Adobe Acrobat. Click the Image Quality pop-up menu, then choose an option (the higher the image quality, the larger the file size of the exported copy).
You can use Word Online to convert your document into a PDF by using the Print command. This will generate a basic PDF that preserves the layout and format of your original document. Or opening in Word to start using the desktop app and doing from there.
If you have a printer that supports borderless printing, you can print any file without margins. This feature can be very useful, especially if the file you want to print contains content that goes all the way to the page edges. However, even if your printer supports borderless printing, the default setting for files is to shrink the content to fit standard page margins (usually an inch on each side). To print your file without these margins, go to the print settings.
