Why not make a cheap variation of the copper embossing idea with aluminium kitchen foil? Write in reverse on the back or write normally on the front and wrap tightly around a lollipop stick or chopped up milk carton. I only ever use the milk carton method (without the foil) which works for me - don't use any ink with a red base as this fades quicker in the sun. Blue and green inks last longer.
