You can actually darken registration marks by thickening them. By doing so, your Silhouette machine will have an easier time registering the marks. Read on for how to darken registration marks. 

There are several reasons why you might need to thicken or darken registration marks, but the biggest reason is due to the material you are printing on. Maybe it's a dark or patterned paper or maybe it doesn't pick up enough ink, like is the case with EasySubli. 

Whatever the reason, you can thicken registration marks to "bold" them which will make it easier for the Silhouette machine to read for a successful print and cut.
