Probably worth a few minutes to test LC's PDF generation from the LC 
Server engine for Linux (or whatever your target hosting OS is).

Snapshots are bitmaps, without vector information.  PDFs can be done 
that way, but lose quality in printing, can't be searched, etc.

Using the LC's Print-to-PDF external translates LC's object vectors to 
PDF vectors, making as much as possible resolution-independent.  This 
not only improves printing quality, but also zooming, and usually 
results in a much smaller file for shorter download times.
