Is there a work around to print horizontal?

Hi all!  I am printing on wood veneer and due to the material it is only flexable with the grain, which runs horizontal.  Is there a way to tell the printer the paper is feeding in horizontally?  I have tried feeding it in vertically numerous times but it won't bend enough to feed through.

See if you can set a custom print size and make width the long edge.

I couldn't figure out how to set a custom print size, but your idea did lead me to an eventual solution  I set the canvas size to 8.5x11 and placed the 4x6 image horizontally on top of that.  I printed first on regular paper, then used spray adhesive to stick the wood onto the paper directly over the image and printed again.  It worked great!  Thank you!

You can set a custom print size in the printer driver, but it looks like you have a solution that works for you.
