    Here is the basic way:

    Build 3 layers
    1 with reg marks
    1 with logo for print
    1 with contour cut

    turn off contour cut layer and print logo with reg marks
    turn off logo for print layer
    turn on contour cut layer

    Align in cutter with reg marks and send to cutter.


    Are you using cut master?

    I've always just created a spot color swatch called CutContour and apply it to the path you want cut.
