depending on the size of the run, you can manually do the embossing. For
small runs, I use a burnisher -looks like a 1 mm ball bearing on a metal probe-
and a circle/oval/whatever drafting template. For accurate positioning
use a light box/glass on top of two bricks with light underneath.
Get straight rightside-wrongside, depending if you want to emboss/deboss.
Strathmore's premade cards (some have colored deckle edges) work fine.
Sometimes it's not weight that's the issue, but whether the fibers are long
enough to "stretch" where the embossing is.
And check your spelling carefully.

as a point of curiosity, did you know Canada has had a dry embossed stamp?
