trimmed four sides

Lifts of paper, usually printing paper, that have been trimmed in the guillotine on all four sides. This is done because paper as it comes from the papermaking mill is not uniform in size as required for the proper registration in two-side printing, as well as folding. Abbreviated T4S. (269 )
