Thanks Tom

I have been working on using the "inksaver" version, that was provided, with the text that I have been using.

The one problem I have is the "open sans condensed" font. I only find light [300] and bold [700] versions. It would look better to have a "normal weight" font of 500 to use for the printing.

I also am in the region that uses Letter size paper and that changes the margin/panel size for the brochure. So I changed the size of the half-circle graphic used in the brochure. I will post it as soon as I work a few "bugs" out, like why it is aligning differently within LO-Linux and LO-Windows versions even with the same fonts used installed on both systems. Also any "borderless printing" needs to be done on a Windows system since the Linux drivers I have does not show that option for the printers that can do that.

Hi :)
Now i have seen a bit more of this thread please ignore my previous post! Just delete it don't even read it. Sorry for the extra traffic :(

I agree with Jean. It's nice to have such a smart official brochure but 'local' versions such as Tim's (@KrackePress) would be great too. Tim's is one that seems to have worked much better for me as it also looks quite eye-catching and "happy"

    I agree with what I've quoted below. Let's see if we can make a
    variation of the brochure, or an alternative version, that's
    suitable for laser or inkjet printing. When I get home tomorrow
    from my latest travels, I'll look at the official brochure; I've
    not had a chance to do so yet.

    I think it's important to have both high-end and low-end materials
    available for volunteers to use. Some printing projects can be
    funded from organisations like Friends of OpenDocument, but being
    able to run off a few copies as needed greatly extends
    opportunities for marketing.

    an officially approved and branded brochure and maybe other

    low budget and hand out to their local market, be it college
    students or at a group of business people who want to be able to
    spend money on other things than renting MS Office products.  We
    need to have a collection of marketing documents, and "swag"
    designs that can be printed locally or ordered at an affordable
    price for people with smaller amounts of money to spend, like most
    people I know locally.
