Mirror Printing - What is mirror printing?
Definition of MIRROR PRINTING:
This technique is used when the finished print needs to be a mirror image - the original reversed around a central axis - so that the print can be read correctly either in a mirror or when viewed through a transparent surface from the opposite side to the printed substrate. Mirror printing can either be achieved by reversing the text, images, or objects in a template or document before printing, or by creating the template or document as normal and using the "Print Mirror Image“ option that is available with some desktop printers. Mirror printing is most commonly used with transparent labels, where the labels are to be applied to the inside of a window or other glass surface and the print is to be read from the outside.
