Yes, at the roll, the printed backing is visible either way, but the film should be coming out from "under" the roll and bending over the roller such that the printed side of the paper is against the pressure plate. As has been noted, if you did reverse it you are merely following in the learning path footsteps of throngs of folks ahead of you.
