    i have an embosser that i got made custom at a shop that makes rubber stamps, like a stationary store. brought him the design, and he did it for maybe $30us. the only think was they folks that worked in the shop smoked about 4 packs a day. so i was almost as gray as they were by the time i left the shop

    oh, the embosser works well with paper, but i can't imagine doing it with 4ply mat board. if you find one, make sure it has a long handle to give you the leverage you will need to "make your mark"

    good luck!

    Always glad to be of service, Graeme. There's so much empty space in my head, the thuds end up being very low frequency, so they travel like a mix between elephant talk and whale song.

    You might check out a leather working shop - all kinds of embossers there.

    When I was an art student majoring in intaglio and lithography, I worked a summer as assistant printer for the contract print shop, which did hand lithographs for various artists. The master printer always put his "chop" mark on his prints. This was on an arches or reeves printing paper, similar to watercolor paper. It was a pretty heavy duty embosser and they probably had it made by a source as similar to what you've been given in previous posts. If you can't find what you want, search for a fine art lithography print shop or printer and see what they have and where they got it. You'll most likely need something with serious pressure.

    Let us know what you end up with. Best.

    Some great leads to follow so far. The leather punch idea has come closest to giving me what I'm after, since I only want to indent the front surface of the matte board, not necessarily the rear side of it.

    Graeme, My wife, as part of her Craft Equipment, has a 'FISKARS' Shape Boss, The Ultimate Embossing System, which she uses for making patterns on 'Hand-Made Cards '
    It says on the box :- Add dimention to cardstock, metal foils and vellum. Embellish scrapbook pages, cards, frames and more THATS where your request comes in !!
    Professional results in minutes.
    I has a base with registration pegs and there are two stensils, the base and the top one , the material, ( Card, Photo, Or matboard is inserted upside down between the 2 stensils and then using a ball hear type stylus pen one just traces around the top stencil stretching the card / photo/ foil to make a raised impression. I can send you more details or a sample embossing if you wish. Fiskars sell many sets of stencil sets ( mainly patterns ) inc Alpha / numerals.
    Cheers Barrie B. Melbourne

    I was in Barnes & Noble yesterday - they had a display of embossing seals that you purchase in the store, and then send away to have the plates custom made for your application. I don't recall the price - something less than US$20, I believe

    I have several of these (one that says "from the library of" that is supposed to keep books from wandering away, and several that I use as a licensed professional to certify engineering documents). My concern would be whether they are strong enough to withstand use on matt board. My "from the library of" seal came from Barnes and Noble and the dies appear to be metal. But the male half of the dies on the engineering seals (supplied by stationery shops) are some kind of plastic material that I would be afraid would not last long if used on heavy stock like matt board.

    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.
