Yes, that’s right. This is one of the things I actually do for a living.
The backstory is actually valid. Our occupational health department offers, among other things, FAA flight physicals. Many of our local pilots seem not to know this, though, and are going to other cities to get the physicals done.
So to promote our much-more-convenient local services, I decided to take the term “flyer” literally and create an advertising piece that can be folded into a working paper airplane.
In order to even do that, though, I had to work up a two-sided template that has the folds marked and the inner, outer, upper, and lower surfaces mapped.
Here are little thumbnails of the results…
The white areas are contiguous places where graphics and copy can be placed without affecting the finished, folded look of the plane. The purple areas are contiguous inner surfaces when the plane is folded; the grey areas are the upper wing surfaces; and the blue areas are the underside of the plane.
…And here’s a zip file (2.5 MB) containing the templates as PDF and Illustrator files.
I saved the Illustrator files back to version CS2. These are formatted to print full-page on US letter paper, 8.5 x 11 inches.
