If the vector graphics are all highly detailed, that is probably where your file size is coming from. When I do my newsletter these days, I always include at least one vectorized hymn score, and it balloons the size of the PDF somewhat. Compressing probably helps (the only way I do it), but the detailed vector graphic of that hymn score still inflates the file size.
