Default excel borders converted to pdf

When I distribute reports, I pdf them first. but subtle, light-colored (grey) borders always come out thick and black. Googling shows that this has been an issue for years. but you all are a creative bunch. anyone encountered this? Anyone come up with a workaround?

Print them then scan as a pdf? :P

Are you using Office's print to PDF option? Can you try a different PDF printer such as cutePDF?

What if you deliberately make white borders?

We have excel exhibits with light grey borders that get pasted into powerpoint (as a picture) and that seems to print correctly.

It's clunky, but it could be a work around....
