Wait a few seconds ⏲️.

It shouldn’t take longer than 10 seconds for our system to do the job. When that’s done, click one button to download the new, combined PDF.

PRO Tip: If the final document is too large, you can resize it in just one click with our online PDF resizer. At SignHouse, you have all the needed PDF tools.

PRO Tip 2: Select “quick actions” next to the blue button to quickly sort the pages alphabetically.

How to combine PDF pages

If, on the other hand, you only want to merge pages (or re-arrange, now that you know the Pro tip!), you can do that too.

Start by selecting the “page by page” button at the top of the page.

  1. Upload your first file/page above (or just drag and drop)
  2. Click the “Add more files/pages” button in the lower part → Add your 2nd file or page
  3. Optionally, re-order them down to your liking
  4. Click “Apply Changes”

Wait a few seconds and save the new PDF.

PRO Tip: We’re discreetly adding our other tools, if you need them. Hover a page to delete/rotate a page 😉.

Can I combine files that are not PDFs?

Yes! With our PDF combiner, you can combine any file that you can think of: Word, PowerPoint, JPG, PNG, and so on.

Once you’ve converted a file into a PDF, the same process applies:

  1. Upload all files into the PDF combiner on this page
  2. Apply your changes, if needed — delete, rotate, sort pages
  3. Click the blue button
  4. Download the new file!

At SignHouse, you have 100% control of your PDF documents.


Can I rotate a PDF and save it?

Yes you can! 

A PDF can be rotated and saved on this very page, without having to leave or use any external tool.

Scroll up on the PDF rotator guide page to be able to do the following:

  1. Upload your document in the PDF rotator box
  2. Use the buttons at the bottom OR just point at a page and rotate only that page.
  3. Click the blue “Apply Changes” button.

That's it! You're done — your PDF has now been rotated and it can be downloaded.

And it only took 1 minute! 

How do I delete pages from a PDF for free?

Deleting pages from a PDF is simple - and 100% free - with SignHouse.

Navigate to the page where we cover a very simple step-by-step guide on how to delete PDF pages.

In there, you'll find a section where our actual PDF page deletion feature is live.

Feel free to use it!

The great news is that you won't even have to leave that page. You'll be able to delete the pages you don't want in your PDF and download the freshly-generated PDF right away.

Is there a free way to combine PDF files?

The short answer is: yes, you can combine PDF files for free in a few steps:

  1. Scroll up on this page to use the PDF Merger tool.
  2. Drag-and-drop (or click to upload) your first document below.
  3. Press the “Add more files” button in the lower part of the screen
  4. Add the files you want to merge: the 2nd, 3rd, etc... files
  5. Press “Apply Changes”
