German term or phrase: Klischee (re POS receipt again!)
Still working with POS systems!
The term appears as one of two setting options for printing information on the receipt:

From further up in text:

"Ueber Programm 61 kann bestimmt werden, ob der [...]Werbetext fuer Bonanfang und -ende abgedruckt werden soll."

Then in a table indicating what each numerical code setting produces, the header is:

"KLISCHEE oder Bonkopfdruck?"

Any ideas? Why can't the good old Krauts just say A when they mean A?????

slogan


Explanation:
I think the idea is you can choose between having a short text ie slogan or the till receipt data eg date or receipt number. hence slogan or logo or promotional text.

Cliche


Explanation:
My dictionary translates it as cliche, so I guess its a fair approximation of the previous suggestion.

Explanation:
Klischee-Druck setzt auf Platinen geätzte Grafiken ein, also eine Art Grafiksatz für den Bonkopf, während Bonkopfdruck üblicherweise bloss ein Text-Kopf ist.
