French term or phrase:gache
gache or gâche (not sure), term to do with wastage in a DTP context. The actual term I need translate is "Prévoir gache", my rough translation is "wastage expected". Any other suggestions would be most welcome!
Explanation: waste sheet
1. A sheet of paper tipped to the outside over the permanent endpaper to prevent it from becoming damaged or soiled during the binding of the book. Special instructions on binding the book may also be written on this sheet. Originally, the waste sheet was printed with an abbreviated title so that the publication could be identified. The so-called printed waste sheet is known as the half-title paper and is always found in books of any pretension to high quality. 2. An old term for the advertisements, blurbs, etc., at the front and back of some publications. 3. **Sheets of paper used in press makeready and register, or the spoiled sheets resulting from errors in printing and binding.
