A4 size paper or material is slightly more narrow and longer than the standard US 8.5" x 11" which you may be used to using in your printer.  However...most 8.5 x 11" printers can take A4 size by a slight adjustment to the tray. That means you can also print and cut A4 with Silhouette CAMEO. Follow along for the steps on how to set up Silhouette Studio print and cut for A4.Sometimes you may come across a material - like Thermoflex ColorUp inkjet printable - that comes standard in A4 size. You can still use this to print and cut on with Silhouette CAMEO 4 if you know how to set up the page correctly.
 
Start in Silhouette Studio by going to File > Print Page Setup.

Return to Silhouette Studio and from the Page Setup panel change the Page Size to "Printer". This will match your printer settings page size (that you set to A4) to the media size in Silhouette Studio.

Before you print, be sure to open the printer tray, remove any sheets in the tray and adjust the tray to the A4 size. Usually inside the tray there's a little tab you can compress to move the sheet guides.
