Hi Christoph,

Thanks for the feedback! 

I've created a new version which can be downloaded from the same link on the same page (a "1" has 
been appended to the filename itself):

Hi folks,

I've created a draft paper airplane design and posted the ODG to my

Please print, test and send me your feedback.

Concerning printing, given the fact that some printers do have
limitations with regard to page margins ... is there any way to consider
this? For example, adding some margin (e.g. 10 mm) to not run into

I placed important elements far enough from the edges of the paper so they will not be cut off. The 
folding lines do run right to the edge, but if they are not completely printed due to the physical 
limitations of the printer, it won't affect the output very much. I tested with a fairly standard 
home inkjet, which was able to print to within about 1/8 inch (about 1/2 cm) of the paper edges, 
and it works fine.

If a printer can print right to the paper edge, this design will take advantage of that.

Is it planned to provide a "duplex" design, so that we can use both
pages for advertising/instructions/... ?

Possibly. I was thinking of creating a second page that would contain folding instructions (with 
illustrations of some key steps). My thought was that users would print some of the instructions 
pages for conferences, along with many of the template pages to give away. Recipients could fold 
their page at the booth while reading the instructions and speaking with our booth staff. (This 
would save paper and give them something easy to talk about.)

It would also be easy to modify the design to create a large space on the bottom of the folded 
plane for additional advertising. (The space on the top of the plane is fairly large already.)

And some minor (nitpicking) stuff: The logo uses a white background -
this conflicts somehow with the slight gradient behind. In my opinion,
it would look better to use a transparent version. Here are some:

Thanks--the logo I was using was just to show the potential placement, but I've updated it with the 
transparent background version, which is a nice improvement.

This is a relatively unique design I found online that glides
extremely well, and leaves a nice space on which we can place the LibO
logo or other custom messaging for events. 

That's cool, especially if there is some advertisement being visible
once it is folded ;-)

It is very visible!

The unique design is like LibO itself--not the ordinary standard people everywhere use (yet), but 
actually something better in many ways that just takes a little getting used to for newbies.
