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

So I have no luck with either.
And if you print to PDF does it look fine? (I mean before uploading)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Nope once I change it to a pdf it messes up the whole file.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Very weird!
I wonder, what if you print it on your own printer, how does it look? Even if you only have a black and white printer, I'm curious if it messes up the layout whenever you print.

Yup , seems it's something to do with my Microsoft word. Because when I print it looks exactly like the pdf.

Very strange! But now you know staples's website is not the problem. You may do best with @Yammer 's idea of taking a screenshot.

Does staples let you upload a jpg? If not, you should try taking a screenshot and then using https://smallpdf.com/ or another service to convert it to a pdf.

I tried yesterday to print the file, and choose save to PDF. It's came up funny.

It's not your Microsoft word. I had the same problem when I tried it from my phone. It seems like to problem is the image background.

I chose that background from Microsoft Word.

Before taking the screenshot, zoom in as much as you can. You can even double click the ribbon to minimize it so you get more space on your screen.

Another option - can you right click on the background and save it as an image? Then delete the background and import the image you saved as a new background. Maybe then it'll work.

I think it also depends witch company you use.

Snipit tool is pretty blurry, but sure (something...don't remember the exact name) can save it directly to a PDF hence it's clearer.
