This can be one of those things that sounds simple but turns out to be a huge PITA. I know from experience! The first step is to call your printer and determine 1) What size sheets they print on 2) What width of margin they need between each cut piece and 3)what margin they need around the entire outside odge of the sheet. Once you start laying the pieces out is when things get difficult, because of how the cutters work. They can’t cut out individual pieces. What they do is put the whole sheet into the cutter and cut straight across the entire sheet. So you have to have continuous cut lines across your sheets. If your pieces are modular (ie. they are all either 3.5" or 7" wide) then it is fast and easy to arrange them. But if the sizes are not modular, you might end up going back and changing the lengths of widths of pieces and re-doing your text to make them fit.
