I have a word document which is a colored print, now I tried to email it, then tried to upload it to staples print website. Each time I upload it,the document becomes disoriented after converting it to a pdf, while the word doc is fine the pdf changes the graphics on the picture. Trying to upload it without changing the docs, anyway to do that? I tried a website like pdf2go and cloudconvert, nothing seems to help.

Can you print it as a PDF? For example CutePDF (Not save as PDF)

Or, from word you should be able to export it as PDF.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

It's not save as, it's a separate thing called Export

Even if I did that how would I send it to Staples to print without them changing the format?

You'll probably do better with a pdf, quality-wise.

When you go to file > print, are any of the choices of printers "Print to PDF" or something to that effect?

Been there, did that, and done that, tried printing it, still comes out with a disoriented background.

Want it to look like this. But when changing to a pdf it all changes.



Here's a pdf version, messes the whole pic.

Even when uploading the Microsoft Word doc which is in the correct format, automatically Staples butchers up your picture.

 Would love to have this by Monday the latest.
Cant seem to figure out what to do.

Here's a preview of what happens when uploading the doc, and staples changes the whole doc.

When you export to PDF is the PDF fine? And just uploading it to staples messes it up?

Nope pdf messes it up before uploading.
And staples messes up the word doc.

So I have no luck with either.
