Extra copies above the number of those originally requested. When publishers order a printrun, they are given a price for the number of copies ordered and usually offered a separate run-on price, which is much cheaper per copy since the printing set-up costs are part of the price of the printrun ordered. Low run-on costs may persuade a publisher to take a chance with a larger quantity than first planned. See also Overs..

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.
