I have done my resume as a pamphlet, a small folder brochure and as a normal
paper format for years. I prefer to send the pamphlet out and present the
client the brochure in person. And if someone is upset by the "outside the
lines" thinking, then I probably don't want to work there.

Just my opinion.
