I know sort of what it means (a printed character standing out from a colored ground)but cannot find the English. Is it outline?

Reverse
Type, graphic or illustration reproduced by printing ink around its outline, thus allowing the underlying color or paper to show through and form the image. The image 'reverses out' of the ink color. Also called knockout and liftout.
