Ink printed on larger area than ultimate size of paper May 20, 2005

Very roughly: if you want to have a printed piece of paper 15x20 mm in size, the ink should cover an area of 25x30 mm (5 mm on each end).
When the machine cuts the paper down to the intended size (15x20 mm), the ink extends to the very edge of the paper.

If the ink was applied only in the area of the ultimate 15x20 mm and the cutting machine was a little out of alignment, you would end up with a thin strip of unprinted paper on one edge. This does not look very nice.

Look for DTP glossaries in google to get a more "scientific" definition.
