    So I made my own monogram in Pubisher and want to put it on OOT bags, but apparently I need to flip it or make it a mirror image or something so it prints right....Does anyone know how to do this?

        I just did this too, and it took me forever. I believe if you push ctrl + H it does a horizontal flip (ie mirror image). Then save that version as a separate file. I copied and pasted it onto a portrait ppt presentation. Got it the right size, etc, in ppt, and then copied in 6 times so that I had 3 on each side. Then I saved that presentation, and everytime I want to print more, I just print that ppt slide and it give me 6. You might want bigger ones, so maybe it would be 2 and 2, you get my drift. Its just convenient to have it on a permanent template.

        Hope that helps!

              okay so I saved it as a jpg picture and then chose to rotate counterclockwise until it looked upside down...is this right?

                  Rotating doesnt make it a mirror image. See if you can open it in picture viewer or some other program, and then try ctrl H. Otherwise its just the same image on its side or upside down.

                      Just FYI - you can make a mirror image by going to the "Arrange" menu, going down to
                      "Rotate or Flip" and selecting "Flip Horizontal". This is what control + H does.
