I just wrote about this in another question (Finding aid title vs. finding
aid filing title

It is very much possible to alter the way your PDFs look.
To do this navigate to the stylesheets folder under your archivesspace main
directory. Open up the ead-to-pdf.xsl.

You should be able to edit that file to make changes to your pdf.  Changes
such as font and spaces in the PDF are at the very top in lines like

    <xsl:attribute-set name="h2">
        <xsl:attribute name="font-size">16pt</xsl:attribute>

you should be able to change that to a 12pt or whatever you need to fit
your needs. Removing and adding components of the PDF is also possible. For
larger changes such as notes not publishing or changing a title you need to
make changes to the ead serializer. This way the changes are applied
directly to the ead and converted into the PDF

Here is an example that I created for the University of Nevada Las Vegas
with some changes to the stylesheets made by The Getty:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good Luck,
