You can use a print-to-pdf or export-image mode, if it exists (hopefully) take the exported file, and print it mirrored. (if a bmp, open in paint, and flip horizontal)

in your print dialogue you might have mirroring options...Other than that you could have problems maintaining scale if you just use paint - can't you do some fancy stuff in the acrobat print dialogue?
