German term or phrase: Farbabnahmebalken außerhalb des Beschnitts mitdrucken
This mysterious phrase concerns an offset printer, not a combination tatoo-circumsion device, as one might suspect. Ernst says "auf der Beschnitt seite" means "offcut, but I still don't get it. And what is "mitdrucken"?:

Genügend Farbe verwenden. Denn bei zu geringem Farbverbrauch besteht grundsätzlich die Gefahr des Emulgierens der Druckfarbe. Deshalb Farbabnahmebalken außerhalb des Beschnitts mitdrucken, um zu gewährleisten, dass während des Fortdrucks frische Farbe nachfließt.

Explanation:
Farbabnahmebalken (color bars) are telling the printer that the ink needs readjustment or a refill. They are printed along the side of the sheet/web in an area that is going to be cut off anyway. If you open a magazine, everything you see and hold in your hands was inside the trim area at the time of trimming (this holds true for a closed magazine as well.)
