In binding and finishing, an insert is one printed signature which has had another signature wrapped around it. See Inserting.

The term insert also refers to any pre-printed page or set of pages which are placed into a separately-printed publication. Examples of inserts are advertising supplements, maps, or foldouts. A free-standing insert is a single signature added to a newspaper.
