Labels Print Backwards

This is a new one to me!!! I've tried to print labels and on the print preview the labels look correct but when I print them out they come out backywards, another words, if you hold the sheet of labels up to a mirror they read fine in the reflection!!  I've checked settings but don't know what I am missing.  No other items print backwards (i.e. using Word, etc).  Can anyone offer a solution???  Thanks!Smiley Surprised

Are you by any chance are you printing to a Postscript printer? That sounds like a printer option to prepare the print out for reproduction.

No. The printer I am using is an HP Officejet Pro 7680 all in one.

You might check your page setup in the print dialog to turn off "mirroring" .... your printer may think that it is making transparencies and is flopping the copy.

Thanks, I tried that and it says the mirroring is off.  What is also interesting is that I can use the "Write" for a letter and it prints correctly....it is the labels that I am having problems with....weird!

Re: Labels Print Backwards

is the label type that you are selecting a "transparent" or clear label?

They are Avery 8160, a regular white paper label.  I am not given a choice of transparent or clear label.

Because the labels preview correct, the problem is in the printer driver. Make sure you have selected the correct options for the template you are using.
