Printing terminology...

Bottling: The process of skewing pages to compensate for paper thickness as
it is folded. Primarily used on signatures designed for large web or large
sheet-fed presses.

[From a software manual]
Note if there are special folding or trim issues.
Allowances for the final folded piece can get complicated, when printing
multiple signatures. Bottling or the rotation of pages should be noted of
they are required during the production process.

Bottling: Vertical allowance for plate bend
