    So we cant print/plot with HIP sheeting. I guess it reflects too much light and it wont read the marks..
    Well, I made a logo for this county water department a couple weeks ago. It was on a sign so it wasnt a big deal but now they want a big HIP decal of just the circle logo. The only thing i can think of is to scissor cut it out after printing. Or maybe someone has some tricks up their sleeve?

    Between the bits
    Print those same marks on a white vinyl and cut them out with a bit of white bleed. Then apply those marks on top of the HIP marks. Voilà, it will work. You can change the distance between the marks to longer so you can do corners only or not so many.
    Or if your cutter has a manual alignment mode use that.
