I've never heard of cutting a cake FIRST then decorating it.

Here is what I do if they want 'squares' Frost the cake. Then measure, and mark off (I use dental floss to just press into the crusted buttercream. Sometimes I'll pipe down the mark and put a flower, initial, whatever the occasion calls for in the center of each square.

Then THEY follow your lines and cut it as it's served.

But what size do you cut it like I have a 12x18 sheet cake. I just don't want her to have to have a million sheet cakes cause she does need alot of squares.

You need to ask your customer first, what size slice she'd like to use. There are cake cutting charts on the net that can guide you. http://www.wilton.com/cakes/cake-cutting-guides/party-cake-cutting-guide.cfm

There is one to get you started.

Okay so according to wilton cutting them 1.5 x 2 inches a full sheet would give me 72 squares so I'd have to make 3 full sheets and 1 quarter sheet to get the full 250 squares. Geez lol. Its just alot of math lol.
