Default Noob Question--Are there any inkjet papers that can't be cut in Silhouette Cameo?

Here's a question that probably has a pretty simple answer, but I haven't come across it. I'm looking to invest in a Silhouette Cameo and don't want to be overwhelmed with a bunch of different transfer paper options. I'm going to order a few samples (a couple of light papers and a couple of dark papers) and wanted to know if all inkjet papers can be cut in a plotter/cutter (specifically, the Cameo). Thanks in advance for your help!

I can't speak for all transfer papers, but I can speak for a few and for vinyl, too. I haven't come across anything yet that the Cameo can't cut. Transfer paper is easiest of all.

One piece of advice on the Silhouette Cameo. It is a great machine but the carrier sheets that Silhouette sells are crap. You will experience slippage and shifting of your cuts with the Silhouette carrier sheets. Buy some of the Cricut carrier sheets and you wont have that problem. They come in regular hold and light hold which is best for paper. You may still need to place and remove a t-shirt a few times to make it less tacky, so the paper comes off easy enough. I cut shirt vinyl (film), wall vinyl and laminated stickers with my machine.
