I saw this printing technique at crafty tutorials http://crafttutorials.wordpress.com/2007/11/20/super-easy-contact-prints-from-your-photos/
and had to give it a try.

I love printing and photograpgy techniques that instantly age images, and this does the trick nicely.  Basically, it involves printing an image on the sticky part of a used label sheet and then using that to create a print.  (so you do want to mirror your image. 

Here was my first attempt, a photo of the Island Inn on Monhegan Island.  I printed on stock card.
