Please check the code for printing the header in odoo 8 reports.

If you use a Company name more than  18 letters,  Odoo fail to print it in 1 line (it split to 2 lines) and the fail to print correctly.

This only happen in PDF report.    For HTML report it prints correctly.

I fixed this for my Odoo installation (v8) by editing the bootstrap.css file.
There I copied the style col-xs-3 to col-xs-31 and changed width from 25% to 30%

Then you need to change the report.external_layout_header qweb under Settings->Technical->User interface. Change class="col-xs-3" for the last div to class="col-xs-31".

Regenerate the PDF and the company name shouldn't be truncated anymore.

Don't change the width of col-xs-3 because it's also used for the header space where the logo is.

I am facing the same problem for odoo9 also, and i attended odoo 9 launch in India, and saw the demo being used by them also had the same issue. Apparently they were also not knowing about this.
