T-shirt transfer woes

I am trying to do a mirror image of text for T-shirt transfers. I have set the printer settings to T-shirt transfers on the media type for my canon ip1700. However, when I print it, it still remains in the normal order, not the reverse. HELP

How to select mirror image or reverse image on printer to print t-shirt transfer

When you go to print, select your Lexmark 5200 Series printer, then click (Printing) Properties to open the Lexmark control panel.

Click the third tab on the left, marked Print Layout, then choose the Mirror radio button (see picture).

Click OK to apply the setting.

Note: if your printing program has a setting for t-shirt transfers, it may automatically reverse the image. Use only the setting in the program or in the printer- if you use both, the settings will cancel each other out.

How do I do mirror (or reverse) printing for a t-shirt transfer? Thanks.

If you are printing text only, you can create it using wordart in word and then use rotate or flip command to reverse the text.
If you are printing a JPG with text, the easiest way will be to use photoshop to edit the image and add text if desired, then use the mirror utility, The picture and text get reversed and the transfer is printed in reverse to become "positive" when you iron it on the Tshirt.

hope this helps.

I am having a problem finding out how to do a mirror image and where to send my scans to myself on my Pixma MX330

I print reverse images (in Word) for t-shirt transfers by going into the printer properties. Select the "Main" tab and for Media Type select "T-shirt Transfers." I believe that it prints the mirror image by default.

There isn't a selection for mirror image, however, if you select "t-shirt transfer" in the printer properties, it will automatically print it as a mirror image, ready for transfer.

Im making some iron on transfers but i have windows vista and i cant find a mirror image?? How do i mirror image??

Check in your settings for media type (plain paper, photo paper, etc.) and see if there is a T-Shirt Transfer media type. If not, you may need to use a graphics editing program that has an option to "flip horizontally" before you actually send it to the printer.

How print iron on transfers

Yes, you need to "MIRROR" the image. Go to printer properties and select the ADVANCED TAB. Click on the MIRROR setting then print onto the transfer paper. The image should print out backwards like you are looking at it in a mirror. When you iron it onto a shirt, it will come out correct.

Printing dark tshirt transfers - can't override the flipped image

Hello I think I can help you. I Would not use T shirt transfer when you make up your print I would select poster print or any other form that does not automatically reverse the image. The reason your software is designed to do this is on the regular transfer paper your laying the image down on the shirt, so for it to come out right it has to be reversed. With the dark T shirt transfer paper your peeling off the backing and putting the image face up on the T Shirt.
