PDF's of enacted US Laws (Stimulus '21, NDAA '21, & Federal Courts) reformatted for Easy-to-Read Printing in US Letter Formats- Free downloads [Updated 1/11/21]

Written by Matt on Friday 17th July 2020

                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
There is an odd quirk about US Law PDF publications you might have noticed. 

US Laws are posted online in HTML, Text, and PDF formats. Most people scan them online for specific things, but many people prefer to download the PDF and print from that. It sounds easy and straightforward, but there's a quirk in the process.
 

Enacted US law and Federal Court PDF's set on a 10" x 15" page  

 

The PDF the US Government uses to distribute the enacted law is from the US Government Printing Office and is set up in a 10" x 15" page format, with the text centered in the middle. The extra space from the large size page is all margin. What does that mean for you? 
 

The Shrinkage Factor- Here's a 10" x 15" page fit to 8 1/2" x 11" US Letter:

Text from US Govt PDF when shrunk to fit on a US Letter sized page

If you print one of these at home on a standard printer, the printer will shrink  the page to fit on a standard US Letter page. This means all of the whitespace remains, and the text shrinks too. 

The words become extremely small and difficult to read. If the PDF is has a very high page count, this is a problem if you need to read, study, or hilight the PDF print. But printMe1.com has fixed that.
 

Our Free Fix

Text when using printMe1.com's reformatted version. We made the text larger without changing any pagination or content. Free download at the link.


We've used our software to create verbatim versions of US Laws from the US Government Printing Office with all content and pagination intact, but we removed the extra whitespace so the PDF will print in larger, easy to read text on a regular US Letter page. 

Our version is the exact Authenticated US Government Information version, but set-up for a standard US Letter (8 1/2" x 11") page.

GBC binding to read like a book

The PDF's of these easy to read in print versions are posted below using our PDF Hosting feature. They are free to download and redistribute. Our PDF printing service is available for any PDF's that are too large to print and bind at home.
