Tech/Engineering - Paper / Paper Manufacturing / paper cutting / sample making devices
English term or phrase: design blank
I' m translating a file about a paper cutting and sample making device. The title of the file is "Print to cut registration - Key parameters "

Rx, Ry - distance from Register mark to ***design blank***

Sx, Sy - distance from Sheet edge to Register mark

Basically I need an explication of the term - none of the colleagues in EN-LV pair have answered yet. Thanks in advance.

Additional reference:

Structural design
The structural design is prepared using a design software tool, as ArtiosCad.

The two register marks are positioned symmetric and in a known position relative to the design (Rx and Ry).

In a company working with this system, one should standardize these values and use the same offset (Rx and Ry) in all designs.

The Program file for the sample maker is output from the design system.

Another output from the design software is a template that is used in the graphical design software to correctly position the register marks relative to the graphics.

Graphical design
and
print
The graphical design is prepared using a graphical design software tool.

The structural design template is used to correctly position the graphics and the register marks relative to the structural design.

When the graphics and the register marks are printed, the print is positioned in a known position relative to the sheet edge.

The nominal values for the position of the register marks is:

Sx - the position of the first register mark relative to the sheet edge in X.

Sy - the position of the register marks relative to the sheet edge in Y.

In a company working with this system, one should standardize these values and use the same offset (Sx and Sy) in all designs.

Sample production
On the sample maker, the offset values Rx,Ry and Sx,Sy must be entered into the system.

Sx, Sy are used to move the pointing device to the correct position. When the position of the register mark is obtained, offset RX, Ry are used to position the structural design relative to the register marks.

Explanation:
In your case the material is paper, and most likely they are talking about stationery or cards. The shape and size is standard to the manufacturer, and there can be different designs, but in the tezt they recommend to standardise the size and position of the design as well.
The "blank" comes into it that it is not a final product, it is designed to receive additional text or similar. So, say it is a wedding stationery, with ready made appearance, with two rings tied up with flying ribbons printed in gold. That's the design blank.
The customer will reguest the text added to it, X&Z happily anounce, blah blah. The design blank can be anything, teeshirts, mugs, etc.
In the paper printing industry the variations are endless.
Here is one, which is sold as a design blank, and can be finished off on the home computer:

Sorry, \"tezt\" should read \"text\".

And \"reguest\" is \"request\". (I was too much in a hurry.)
