Can't you just go into the printer settings and print 2 sides onto 1 A4 sheet when printing the original PDF file?

The following "works" for me (it's not great, but at least things fit):

At the very top, change a4paper to a5paper:

\documentclass[10pt,a5paper,twoside]{article}

Then, a few lines below, change the sizes in the geometry package:

\usepackage[textwidth=11.3cm,textheight=18.0cm,includehead]{geometry}


You can tweak these as you wish.

Then, make sure you're compiling with pdflatex, not standard latex. The result should be vectorized as you wish. (Most TeX editors have a menu choice for this. If you're on the command line, all you need to do is type 'pdflatex '.)

TeX is the language of mathematical publishing... welcome to the fun.
