The Silhouette does offer the print & cut feature when using registration marks. Print & cut jobs are those where you design a project in print format in the Silhouette program with cut lines associated. After designing your print images and cut lines in the program, you would then print your job to your regular printer. Once you have your printed image, you would then take your printed paper and feed it into the Silhouette to find all cut lines defined in your job to cut them out. The Silhouette's optic scanner will automatically find the registration marks on your printed paper and know where to cut according to where these registration marks have been placed.
Some images offered by Silhouette America are print & cut images. These are images that appear to have cut lines with filled in color images. You may also import images to cut out around associated cut lines. These types of images are designed to be used in the following manner:
The Silhouette should then go through the normal cutting process and find all cutting data in order to trace and cut out around the printed image according to where the cut lines were defined (usually traced against the printed image).
