punching
Explanation:
"Frequently, people confuse the words punching and drilling. A product that is drilled always has a round hole in a bindery. These holes can range from 1/8 inch to 1 ½ inch and the drilling can be done in lifts or piles up to three-inches high for some stock weights and some hold sizes. Punching, in the context of a bindery, refers to a hole, which is not rounded but rectangular or oval. Punching is usually done only with single sheets in extremely small lifts of paper."
Compare with the GDLC's 2d def of "trepa": "... adorn consistent en un tall o una obertura en una peça de tela, sota el qual es veia tela d'una altre classe o color..." and 3d of "trepar": "Fer trepes a una peça de vestit". In other words, it's making a hole in the paper through which something else can be shown.

Thanks. Without you I would have used "perforating" - but punching sounds more up the right tree.
