I clicked 30mm but to me the range 25-30mm is one thing. Due to base height and other factors like stance of the miniature you would get different heights in that range for one scale range.
The scale ranges I have found in the market are more like 15mm and 25-30mm for tabletop gaming and then 1:72, 1:48 for the plastic figures (Airfix, Revell etc.) For children toys I would also consider Lego and Playmobil scale.
The poll should probably have included a 15mm-18mm range entry, given this is very popular for cast wargame minis. It's the scale I usually resize my paper minis and models to now. As lightning said, the 25mm-30mm range is virtually the same thing these days, so doesn't really need multiple entries.
In many respects, I'm happy if designers go for 30mm scale minis and models, because they'll almost always scale down to my preferred 15mm without problems.
You might also wish to consider the more popular railway model scales as well (around 20mm scale, but having much more naturalistic human proportions in the figures than many of the gaming minis), since card and paper models have long been part of that hobby, and continue to be so in the world of downloadable PDFs.

I clicked 30mm because the people I game with have a lot of the D&D plastic ones. I also have also scaled Permes and Okumarts minis down to 15mm when I was preparing for certain sessions, like three ships meeting at sea or a big battle that spanned the Piazza San Marco. The last figures I made (and I will soon share) turned out to be more like 32-34mm and I am just going to use them but try to reduce the template a little for the next batch.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
