    I have word starter. I can set up the label in it with a picture and print. I cannot reverse it in word. I try to transfer it to paint, and can't get rid of all the stuff around the page when I transfer it, so it ruins most of the page of my expensive iron on paper. My printer does not reverse print. Anyone know what to do???? Thanks so much in advance.

    I reverse in my printer settings.

    When you hit print, and bring up the printer screen, look in advanced for either reversed or mirror image. Check that and then print, and it will print reversed.

    Yep, use your printer setting or go to a "cheap" program like Creata Card. Thats what I use for my quilts.

    Apparently, my hp printer does not have that option.

    What I have done, spending all morning on it, is succeed in downloading and adding to my fonts one that is backward. I think this will work!

    Thanks.

    I just discovered that June Tailor has free quilt label templates online. They came out great. I did the text in Word Perfect then copied and pasted into the open template. I printed on to Printed Treasures fabric sheets.

    I just typed out a label in Word, clicked on print in the drop down, clicked on properties, then clicked on mirror image and clicked print. Printed out reversed very nicely. Does that help you?

    HP website has free printing programs to use with all HP printers. And there is a quilt label program there for free.

    Why not just print directly on fabric?
