Email through web report studio (PDF) format

We are struggling with many basic problems of SAS and most of the times the answer from SAS is that it's a tool limitation. As our problems are very basics, I am sure some one must have solved it.

I'll appreciate if we can get answers for following question.

We want to send reports automatically through emails from web report studio. We have accepted that SAS cannot send report in excel format. The other option we have is PDF as we don't want to go with embedded html due to many reasons.

Now when we send out the email, and some one takes a print out, it's so tiny that you literally have to use magnifying glass to view it. We went and checked all the settings, but nothing helped. SAS Team on site also trying their best but so far no result.

I'll appreciate if you can help me with how you have handled this, as it's bringing our IT embarrassment in front of management, who want to print the reports as well.
