Jupyter Notebook -> PDF with A4 pages?

I typically use the "nbconvert" tool (that one typically installs at the 
same time as installing jupyter). Behind the scenes, this goes through 
latex (and through pandoc in particular). It seems most natural to 
convert to latex.

One can specify a template to be used in nbconvert. See

for a bit more on this. The template is really used in the same way that 
templates are passed with pandoc. Alternately, if you didn't want to 
muck around with figuring out how to specify your own template, you 
could just modify the first line of the generated tex file to something 

    \documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{article}

If you wanted a completely different (and perhaps lackluster) approach, 
you could just view the notebook in your favorite browser and 

Good luck!
