German term or phrase: Überfüller
From the same listing of options for advertising in a catalogue

"Format: 210mm x 297 mm (+3mm Überfüller)"

I've found the following German definition, but can't find an English term:
"Eine weitere Bedeutung des Wortes ist die Bezeichnung des Raumes, der beim abfallenden Druck über den Seitenrand hinausgeht."

Didn't know there'd be so much printing jargon when I took on a "travel and tourism" job!!
