    I've never heard of that term either. I think it's fair to e-mail them back for clarification.

    Doesn't exist, the only cut files are for vector files such as .AI and .EPS to be used with a plotter.

    If this is a company, don't work for them, they have no clue terms for anything, so they probably aren't very good. Move on to a better company.

    So just tell them that there is no such thing as a "Homepage Cut File" and that if anyone at their company thinks that such a thing exists then that person is totally stuffing up the company web site. If it turns out that the moron stuffing up the site is the person who asked you the question then at least they will have been told that they are wrong - and if everyone they ask tells them the same thing then they may eventually realise how stupid they have been - if not then they'll just accumulate more stupid people working for their company and make it less likely that you will run into stupid people elsewhere.
