Zipping creates problems
When files are too big, it seems like the only alternative you have is to zip the file before sending it. This was the case back then and maybe even today especially since PDFs are becoming more popular and they tend to be very bulky in size. Zipping is not only tedious but it can also be problematic at times. Not only do you have to physically zip the file yourself, but there is also a possibility that the recipient might not have the program needed to unzip the file.
Alternatives to zipping
Since zipping can be so problematic, a much easier and simpler way is to just compress the PDF files to begin with. By doing so, you do not need to worry about zipping the files and then worry if the recipient can unzip them or not. When you compress the PDFs, you leave them in the same format, and nothing has changed except for the fact that the files are up to 100x smaller than the original. This makes them much easier to transmit and work with.
Where to get compression?
If you are new with PDF compression, a good idea would be to look at different products and evaluate which ones are the best choice for your company. In my opinion, the best available product is CVISION's PdfCompressor. Not only does it perform at levels of high-accuracy, but it also can compress up to 100x.
