Below are collections of PNG files I've been sharing with people that help add registration marks to PDFs. The first set is a layout in which there's a 1" margin at the top of the page where you can put product branding. Some folks might like to have a simple, consistent banner at the top of their files, and this makes that simple. There are times when you might want to squeak a little more space out of the page for actual graphics. The second zip file contains registration marks with a smaller top margin. If you get in the habit of putting your product branding on a layer that can be toggled off, you can probably have the best of both worlds!
Note that the "cutting_area.png" file is meant to be a layer for designing with. DO NOT include it in your PDF or exported images. The grey areas represent places where you CAN NOT put graphics, or else reading the registration marks may fail. Note that this is not quite true. Though they advise not having graphics all long that bottom edge, I include a message indicating the direction to feed the page, and have never had a problem with registration marks being read automatically... I think your mileage may vary in this space. Just do NOT put graphics in the rectangles corner that would contain the registration marks. THAT is sure to screw things up.
I've also included a "sample.studio3" file that should have the registration marks in the right place, letting you get designing compatible cutfiles more easily.
There's a readme.txt in there that has a little bit of info on my preferred settings and styles.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
