Printing a PDF page in A0 poster


Question

I have a poster that I want to print in A0 size. For technical reasons, the output PDF file unfortunately is currently not in A0 size. How can I print this poster in A0?

Should I first convert it to A0 somehow before sending it to the printer (which I don't know how) or I can just send the file to the printer and there just simply select the A0 option in the printing menu and the printer would take care of it?

I have used LaTeX to make the poster.

Thanks

In my opinion, let the printing company study the document.

There are two main factors at hand.

1) Does the document have the correct proportion? Is the document A4 for example, and not a horizontal long banner-like document?

2) Is the document in vector format? If it has images, are they in a good enough resolution?

If the answer to those questions is yes, the printing company can simply check a box to fit the print to the page.

Just be sure to tell the printing company that you need them to print it on A0 84.1 × 118.9 cm. size.


P.S. Do not try to rescale it by yourself because you will potentially add some problems to the file, like resampling, changing color modes, etc. I read on the comments that you were trying to modify it on Gimp... Do not do that.
