French term or phrase:cartel
les cartels - format A4, contenant quelques lignes d'explication...à imprimer localement...
Obviously some sort of card, but I've never come across it before. Petit Robert says that cartel is a card used to challenge someone to a duel.
If it's for an exhibition, these are the little cards next to the exhibited object explaining what it is.
In a visual merchandising context they would most probably be small cards placed next to a product, describing it and perhaps giving the price.

Explanation: That's what we call them in the US,there are various sizes but since they refer to printing, I believe they could be what is called "mailers" in direct marketing jargon. One specific kind is a card deck made up of postcards.

"A cooperative pack of postcards, usually mailed in a clear poly outer, that is used in both consumer and business-to-business direct marketing. The postcard, which either orders the product or asks for more information, can be mailed back to the individual advertiser. "
