If you’d like to send a PDF flyer to someone, perhaps a print shop or a team member, but you receive a file size limit error when trying to email it then you will need to use a different method for sending the file.
Most email providers only allow you to send a file up to 20 MB in size. If you’ve added high resolution photos from a digital camera, each photo can be 4-5 MB, meaning you can easily surpass this limit.
You may use a service such as WeTransfer or Dropbox to send large files. For this example, we’ll use WeTransfer since their current limit for the free plan is 2,000 MB file size.
- Visit WeTransfer.com and click “Take me to free.”
- Click Add Files to select the file or files from your computer that you’d like to send, in this case the PDF flyer that you created.
- Enter all the details including their email, your email, and any message (optional). Then click Transfer.
Once the transfer is complete, the other person will receive an email with a link to download the file.
