CutContour A cut contour is often used on a plotter type of printer (like a Roland) that is used to print vinyl. That CutContour tells the plotter where it needs to cut after it prints it. #CutContour

You set up the CutContour as a spot color in your color pallets called and name it CutContour. You use 100% Magenta on the color mix. But, make sure it’s a spot color and uses that name. (This is most standard, however some plotters may require something different).

Remember in this case as I am sharing, it is done as one word, with both of the C’s capital. This is important too!

So basically Basically anything inside that magenta line area is what will be cut out to be used.
