There are two ways to cut out prints. On the one hand, you can cut the contours of an image. For example, consider stickers where you cut out the shape of the image. You can simply peel this image off of the backing paper and stick it wherever you like. On the other hand, you can cut right through the material on which you are printing (including the backing paper). This gives you finished stickers that you can easily pile up or hand out.
