View Full Version : TShirt Transfers: How do I print a mirror image of a page ?

21-11-2002, 08:05 PM
I have recently purchased some T-Shirt transfer paper for our printer. It's great fun getting an image on a T-Shirt, but it is a mirror image of what you print. This is no problem printing images, but all text is back the front. I am trying to find a way to print a reverse page.

I'm using Word 2000 and a Canon 2100SP

How do I print as a mirror image ?. Any ideas ?.

Use an image editing program. Take a screenshot or copy of whatever you want to print, paste it into the picture program, and use the "Mirror" option to mirror the image, then print it.

It should be in your printer properties, perhaps under media, t-shirt labels or similar.

Usually the flip is done there, and Canon do sell media that you need to print in reverse, and state its compatable with your printer.

:D This is probably a much better way to do it than the way I suggested :)

Hi Blairc,

If you have any sort of Graphics application on board
you could copy/paste to it(you may have to change
file name to jpg,gif or bmp or such)?

The print facility should have the mirror image option.

I use ULEAD's Express3SE and it works fine.

Not sure if MS Paint,has this option as this is already installed on
Windows operating systems.

Someone else reading this post can probably add more help on this.
