Using Full Sheet Materials With Your Cutting Machine + Complete Material Cut Settings GuideBy Johnny Nieves
If you use an electronic paper cutter like the Silhouette Cameo®, Cricut Explore®, or Brother Scan N Cut®, printable full sheet sticker paper can be your best friend. These versatile tools can help you create custom stickers, label sizes, shapes, configurations, and more. The best part? All of the materials we offer in full sheets are compatible with the most popular electronic cutting machines.
Check out the type of materials that work best with your cutting machine and use the tables below to get all of the cut settings you need for your electronic cutting machine!
Using Full Sheet Adhesive Labels (Sticker Paper)
If you sell or use scrapbooking materials, are a planner enthusiast, or need a custom label layout for your project, full sheet labels can get the job done. The ability to create a unique label configuration is a powerful resource. You can create almost any shape and size layout giving more options on just one sheet.
Our most popular full sheet products to use with cutting machines are our printable sticker paper without a back slit. One of the coolest features about cutting machines like the Cricut and Silhouette tools, are their ability to cut through the label facestock and not the liner. This essentially gives you the ability to create unique label layouts. Having no back slit on your full sheet labels helps for two reasons:
- It makes for easy peeling when it's time to apply your new labels
- Back slits can be a pain to peel off of the adhesive mats used for cutting
Creating Custom Magnet Shapes
Many cutting machines also have the ability to cut through magnet sheets. Our full sheet magnetic paper can be used to create custom magnet shapes to dress up your own fridge or to sell. You'll need an inkjet printer for the magnetic full sheets and a cutting machine compatible with the material like the Silhouette Cameo or Cricut Explore. You'll also want to use an adhesive mat with the magnet sheets to keep your cut pieces from falling into the machine as you cut.
Using Printable Cardstock
Cardstock material is another great option for those looking for a non-adhesive material to work with. You can create custom invitations, business cards, letters, hang tags, and stencils. We recommend using an adhesive cutting mat to help hold the cardstock steady while the machine cuts. It'll also keep the cut pieces from getting caught in the machine.
Using Iron-On Transfer Material
Our iron-on transfer paper allows you to add custom designs on t-shirts, pillowcases, and other pieces of cloth. Cutting around your transfer design allows you to get a closer cut and eliminate the outline of the background.
