How can I shrink a PDF to fit on one page?

Question: I'm trying to print an article and it is just over one page. Is there any way I can shrink it to fit on one page? I'm on a Mac by the way.


Solution: According to your description, I have two solutions for your reference. One is that you can convert the PDF to word using our software VeryPDF Scan to Word OCR Converter, in the word documents, you can merge the two pages into one then print PDF.  Two you can use software PDF PDF Stitcher for Mac to merge two pages to one.  In the following part, I will make a brief introduction about the two solutions then you can compare them and choose the better one.
