Export sketch artboards to pdf


My notes on how to export sketch artboards to pdf

Problem:

You can use the built in export artboards to pdf feature. But the problem is that it creates a pdf with all the raw resources in the sketch project. sometimes its over 100mb. The bellow solution creates a small pdf while retaining quality. You can use an online pdf convert to do the same thing. But quality may end up worse than you expect.
