Hi there, I need help. I've designed a A5 flyer in indesign and exported it to a pdf. I've uploaded the files to a printing website and the preview looks very blurred. I open the pdf on my MAC and seems fine even the file size say its 178KB. Is that a normal file size for a printed document. Im not sure if its some setting Ive changed on my indesign program. Any help would be great.

Did you prepare your file at full size? 178 KB sounds very small for a document that is intended for Print. When you exported to PDF did you use either the Press Quality or High Quality Print settings? Could you upload a larger screen shot? The one that you've provided does not blow up enough when clicked on to be able to see anything about it that might be helpful.
