How do I mirror text so it appears correct on the t-shirt

Welcome to Just Answer.

My name is Jason and I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.

From which application are you printing these items?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I am going to use Inkjet Transfer Paper to imprint on a t-shirt. I want to print SAMMY The Real Cool Dog on the t-shirt. I cannot just type the words; I must type the text backwards so when I transfer the image to the t-shirt the text reads correctly. If I jiust type the words backwards, will they be correct when transferred?

Thank you for the update.

My question is, which application are you using to print? Examples would be "microsoft word", photoshop, etc...

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I'm using Publisher 2007 to create the master copy. I will print the master, using my Epson printer, giving me a transfer sheet. I then will iron the image on the transfer sheet on my t-shirt.

Thank you for the update.

I am using Microsoft Office Publisher 2007. I got as far as Arrange: rotate or flip. I clicked on flip horiontal and nothing happens, whether I highlight the text or not. A pirit profile shows the text to be the usual, correct reading.


What to do now?



Thank you for the update.

Do you wish to do this now or at a later time?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Now, I did not have email opened until now, sorry


Please, click the link now or we can continue this later because my day ended a while ago.

Do you wish to click and run the remote app now?

Is this so you can get into my computer remotely?

Yes, the link is for the remote.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I want to allow you to get into my computer remotely so that you can learn why I cannot flip the highlighted text. Will you be operating the remote?

Yes, I will be operating the remote.

I see that you have left neutral feedback for me. Do you wish to continue now?

I will send you the remote link right now if you are ready.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Yes , I am ready. I think I tried a link before and got confused because it appears that I need to enroll in something. l don't want to enroll in anything. l just want to know how to get my text flipped.


Thank you.

We seem to be crossing our messges. I was waiting for your email reply while you were waiting at Just Answers. Sorry. How will I know that you are again ready with the remote link? Email?

When I hit the print button, with my text in place, Epson starts printing, without giving me the opportunity to call for the options. How do I stop Epson from printing immediately
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I am wondering whether, if i make my page a picture (if I could figure how to do that ) maybe I could get the print options to come up before printing.

Do not press the Print "button"; instead, in the top menu bar, click FILE> PRINT.

Another way is to press CTRL P

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Thanks, that answers all my questions.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I'm confused. I thought I had a month in which I could send more questions. I don't want to pay another $30.
