Can I flip text in a mirror image so as to print for a t-shirt transfer?



   I am making shirts for a Bachelorette Party and my program on my computer doesn't have the color I want to use, Google Docs does but I need to flip the text in a mirror image so that when we print and transfer them to the t-shirts, you can read them.  I cannot find the option for the life of me and I hope there is a way to do it.  Help!

Ok, so I used the "drawing" instead of the docs and there is a flip horizontally button but when I click it nothing happens!  The flip vertically button works, but not the horizontal :( Any ideas?

I'm having the exact same issue and it is still unresolved.

Use a text box on the image and then flip it. It worked for me :)

Consider turning it into an image if that works.

I just figured it out. Click on create in google drive then choose Drawing, then click insert and choose word art. Type whatever you want; then using the dot on the right hand side (the dot used to stretch the box out to the right) drag it to the left off the template. Its like your turning the page over. Then just move the whole thing back on to the template.

I just did this on google docs by
1) Create a drawing
2) insert word art
3) create your word art and press return
4) then, click on Arrange. Click on "Rotate" and the option to flip is given,either horizontally or vertically.
 
Good luck! I'm making a copy of text for transfer printmaking.
