folded sign: Re: One off Pi Day

I'd generally be inclined to not print fold line for a simple
fold-in-half.  It's basically just one more thing to be not
aligned exactly right when printed ... or when folded.

So I'd be inclined to skip it entirely - or make it quite subtle
(e.g. maybe a pair of small and/or lightened + marks).

Where I think fold lines make more sense, is more complex
designs - e.g. where there was markings and printing on
piece of paper to fold into a optical disk sleeve.  That
had multiple folds, different directions of folds, and proper
ordering to it - and I think somehow there was enough information
also printed to be fairly likely (if one was paying attention)
to get all those folds correct.

Same all around for me too ("impeccable", "excellent", "looks good", ...

The only suggestion on top of making it into a folded sign with both sides
printed is to maybe add three or five extra blank lines between each side
and to then add a visible foldline directly through the middle.
Some people get fancy by doing a foldline of equal signs with the obvious
message "FOLD HERE" in the middle of the line for further emphasis, like
"=======================  FOLD HERE  ======================="
IMHO, the foldline doesn't really have to get that fancy; a simple line of
dashes running across the middle of the page does just fine.
