Loraine,
Since I am still struggling on perfecting the art .. I will defer to Linda's advice below.
Let me know how yours turns out.

I have printed on either side and it does work. I have been told to print on the rough side. I rub with a popscicle stick to get the printing off to my card. You can even print in different colors. That is what is so fabulous with this method.

Hi Loraine! Make sure you are using "best" for print quality, so you get the most ink on the transparency. I rub really hard in every direction with the popsicle stick to make sure I get as much ink onto the paper as possible. Good luck!

Lorraine, I also make sure the ink doesn't dry all of the way. I did that the other night and it was very faint when I tried to rub it on to my card. I don't know if this helps but when I make my verses or word I put the font on bold print. That way there is more ink also on the transparency. Don't know if this is the correct way, but it works for me. Good luck.

Hello all,
I realize this is an old post but want to Thank You all for sharing your knowledge. I couldn't figure out where on in my Word Program the flip/reverse feature was, read this post and the words 'MIRROR' text triggered something in my brain. I saw the 'mirror' in my word program it was not enabled and ignored it. After reading this post, I enabled the feature and it works! I'm so thankful and thrilled. I've made cards to use whenever and now I can add text to the cards as needed.

I love this site for many reasons, the knowledge and techniques that are shared and willingness to help others always amazes me; although it shouldn't, crafters are wonderful people.

Thanks again.
Best, Mollyz

I've had problems with my Epson workforce 40 just sending the transparency through. I solved the problem by taping the edge that feeds into the printer to a piece of paper. When I do this it prints it.

Just saw this pop up again, and read it through. I have to try this now, lol. I have printed on transparency's before,and I also had some slick paper that you could print out on your PC, then heat emboss- nearly out now, and can't find it anywhere.One thing I did notice using that, was that the paler the colour, the less time I had to get the embossing powder on before it dried too far. Maybe that is the problem with some people not being able to get this to work properly? The lighter, or paler colours may need less drying time?
