    Sure, this will be easier than you think. Every file you upload to your WordPress media library automatically has its own url.

    –log in to your WordPress dashboard
    –upload the pdf to your media library
    –once it has been uploaded, click 'edit' which will bring you to a screen that has a field called 'File URL'
    –copy the url of the file that's given

    It will look something like this: http://www.yoursite.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/file.pdf

    You can use that url by sending it out as a straight web address, and that way people can download or access it without seeing any theme files.
