PDF - How To Create One

To create a PDF all you have to do is simply download a PDF printer add on.
When you create a document or image etc.. click the print button and select the PDF software (It will display as a print).

I would advise PrimoPDF i have been using it for many years now and creates incredible PDF's with many options such as passwords, text PDF, hign resolution PDF ect.
Once you have download the software, open the file you wish to have as a PDF (This will be a new file and not overwrite the original file) click print and chose PrimoPDF from the printer drop down menu.
PrimoPDF will then lunch it conrol panel where you select options such as the once stated above including where you would like to save the PDF

I want to print mirror image for heat press


If you need a quick fix for printing a mirror image on your printer, download and install CutePDFwriter http://www.cutepdf.com/products/cutepdf/writer.asp into your printers. This is a free download. Choose the printer preferences.Click the "Advanced" button. Click on the + sign next to "PostScript Options". Change the Mirrored Outpout: from No to Yes. This will let you print to a PDF file without messing up your original document. You can then print the PDF file to your paper. This may not fix your printer but it is a quick fix to do what ever and then you don't have to make the changes again if you want to print the item, picture, text, etc. again. Hope I have helped.

Printing Backwards like a mirror image


You need to change the printer properties.

You can do this a few ways:

  • Click File , Print , then click the Properties button.
  • Click File , Print Setup , then click the Properties button.
  • Click File , Print , Setup , then click the Properties button.
  • Click Print , Properties , then click Printer Assistant .
  • Click the Taskbar Printer icon.
  • Right-click the applicable 3740 icon in the Printers folder, then click the Printer Preferences button.


Click on the "Basics" tab.

The 3rd option under "orientation" will say "mirror image".

Make sure this is un-checked.
