    Where did you create the layout? Indesign? Why don't you export it to a TIFF file, open it in Photoshop, flip canvas horizontal, then save and print that. Is that what you want to do?

    What are you gonna use to print it? Inkjet printer? Sometimes the built in printer driver has options to mirror print it. You can access it via the printer setup.

    we laser print our company i.d. cards and laminate them.

    all we do is the front and back is laid out as a spread (side by side), printed on one side of board paper, and we just fold that and seal it in plastic, tapos.

    P.S. our company i.d. card layout is done in Filemaker Pro.

    That way, we also have a record of what cards were printed, flexible enough to print one or more sets as needed on a page, lost or damaged cards can easily be replaced, plus we have password protection for access to the file.

    Got it!

    thanks, guys for sharing your pieces! Just received the book, "Adobe InDesign CS KillerTips." The catch is: Select the the object, then click on the Transformation Menu and Click on the Option Flip Horizontal/Vertical. Good heaven!

    Thanks to Scott Kelby, et al...PhotoshopCS and Indesign CS Killer Tips books are a treasure!
