Louis, thank you!

There's a new version on http://www.thomas-zastrow.de/brochure.pdf

Printing it on a LaserJet looks good.

Btw.: I'm not sure what OpenSource-Font would be the best for such a 
flyer? The Luxi-Sans, which I use at the moment looks a little bit to 
heavy, I think.

I changed a lot ;-)
