Print your text on bitmap and them mirror this bitmap.

To write on bitmap, you can first create an instance of System.Drawing.Bitmap with required size and pixel format:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.drawing.bitmap.aspx[^].

To draw on it, you will need to create an instance of System.Drawing.Graphics from your instance of bitmap using this static factory method: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.drawing.graphics.fromimage.aspx[^].

Now you can draw your text on bitmap using one of System.Drawing.Graphics.DrawString methods:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.drawing.graphics.aspx[^].

To make a mirror image, you will need to work a bit with image pixels. To do that, use one of LockBits methods:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.drawing.bitmap.lockbits.aspx[^].

Finally, use PrintDocument to draw converted bitmap.

No, you don't "want to know the exact code". The whole idea of "knowing the code" is wrong. You want to write the code, not having anyone to do your job. So, do it, ask questions if you stuck.
