How to emboss name on photo?

I know that Photoshop is the easiest way to put your name/seal on a photo. But for those of us still using film and suffering through the archaic methods, what is the standard way of embossing one's name or initials on a photo? I've seen some embossing machines that run ~$600. Is this what I'm looking for or is there a simpler method that's escaping me?

Josh Lyman   If you are looking for simple, not so pretty ways to do it, then you can get a littl hand tool, similar to the ones that people use to emboss golf balls. It should cost around $20. You set the type in it to your name or whatever, squeeze, and voila! it's embossed! Quick and dirty, and available at Hobby Lobby for example, it may be worth a try sooner than spending $600!
