    Exporting to PDF from InDesign reduces file dimensions

    JoeyMM

      Right now I'm using InDesign CC 2015 to make some large scale banners (35 inches wide x 124 inches high). The printer I'm sending these to prefers Illustrator and Photoshop files, so I was going to export the files as PDFs and then just bring them into Photoshop to make PSDs. My problem is when I export a file as PDF, it comes out at about 30"x106.6". I have checked the Document Setup as well as the master pages in InDesign, and they both measure correctly at 35" x 124". I've tried to export to JPEG and PNG to see if they could be viable alternatives for the printer, but due to the size of the banners, InDesign won't render them.

       

      Here are my computer specs:
