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.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

Vermin King: Not all progress is beneficial...

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.

cowboyleland: For some reason Hoard 93 isn't downloading for me. No error message, just nothing happens when I click.

Vermin King: Extreme localized flooding sucks ... if it is centered over you
