I hear this a lot from people...."My Silhouette has trouble detecting registration marks on dark and/or patterned paper." No worries, print and cutters, there is a secret tool that will help solve the failed registration marks detection issues you're experiencing. I tested this out on some dark patterned paper just to demonstrate how well this method works.
Open up Silhouette Studio and create your print and cut design like you normally would. When you're ready, add the registration marks.
All you have to do now is slide the "Thickness" bar over to the right as far as possible. The difference is minor, but significant enough that it makes it is easier for the laser to detect the registration mark on patterned and dark paper.
Here's how mine looked when I printed it...
I made a video just to show you how easily my machine read these marks - in one take!
