printing to a pdf file with probably shrink the file size.
iirc, you're trying to shrink the size of a formular and i fear that
there is no "free" way to shrink such a pdf file (acrobat pro may be
able to do it).
this is one of the cases, where scribus could, need for a person
stepping in and wanting to implement a "light" pdf export for scribus.
Or a company should finance it...
it's one of the features which would clearly improve scribus but which
won't be implemented in a near future because the current situation is
good enough (and the priority is to fix things which are not good enough!)
