Home > Uncategorized > Overs


Extra copies produced by the printer above the number ordered by the publisher, to allow for copies that are spoiled during printing, binding or transport. Publishers are usually obliged to accept a limited number of overs but may only have to pay the run-on price.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on printing and binding.
