Hello Tim,

I need a brochure that I can print out 20 or 30 copies whenever I run
out or need more.  This one does not work for my home office.

Sorry, I am not a fan if you cannot print it out so it looks good
without an expensive paste ink press system.

Tim: Thank you for your very good valuable points. Your arguments do give us reason to have an official template version (for offset printing) and perhaps a community version that is both optimized for the home printing and costs.

Issa suggested this latest iteration for us and I think that it looks great for our official version.

I absolutely didn't take this into account, as I said before I was just trying to match the website 
design. The dark title page was me making sure the title page didn't stand out less than the inside 

If we can all agree to it, that template could be used as the official TDF/LibreOffice v.4.0.x template. It will not be our community version for the reasons that Tim has explained.

I've made another version which only uses black and regular green (rather than olive) which can 
also works in black and white:

I know it isn't the same as the website anymore, but it keeps the half circle design while using a 
lot less ink. Also only the title page colors are changed, the rest is the same.

The "gray" background leaves white edges.

I think these should be cut/not printed for the brochure to work, because the half circle isn't 
meant to have white space above it.

I have printed out a copy and I have to say, that it does not seem to be too attractive in B/W.

Here are a couple of other examples that I have also made[1][2]. Have a look and see. I have used our official logo svg and changed the colours to match the website "olive green" as well as matched the black background.

I now have read that Tim is concerned with bleed-through or shadowing for the black half-circle headers and logo. It would have to be tested to make sure that these work.

These two examples mimic the website theme we have for LibreOffice v.4.0.4
