    Without knowing your cutter specs its quite hard to give accurate info. But, most cutters have basically the same commands. In my software (signgo pro) I have a drop down menu for all sorts of paper sizes from postcard to 00 and even infinite... (although my cutter will only cut 20 meters in session). So, first choose your paper size or width (you can type this in manually!) and get designing. Some softwares even have a SmartCut feature that will cut the best possible way to minimise the waste. Just check your softwares website, they usually have a support forum where you can find most of the answers.
