I hope that makes sense! If you don't have photoshop you can probably do the same thing in a different program. HTH!

Do you do it under New, Blank, then inches then Color Mode RBG Color , Then Back Ground Contents as Transparent?

Did you mirror it in Photoshop or did you mirror it when you went to print?

This is a really great thread. Thanks for posting. I do have a question....does the kind of ink/printer make a difference? I have both inkjet and laser and have not yet tried either....can I use both???

Has anyone tried this with a printer that prints and feeds through the front?

Has anyone sent her a donation? I sent her $5.00 and would like to challenge others to do the same. It's a small amount to pay for personalized ribbon, don't you think? I bet we all would make her day! (I wonder if she is a HipGirl...?)

My printer feeds through the front. As long as you put it in facedown, it should work just fine.

Great share! I think the Gain softener is a key, I've had others say that is what they use too.
