@MaryRachel:  Hey girl! I had custom plates made by boxpress and letterpressed my save the dates. 

You can letterpress with no ink and that will give yout the depressed look (blind embossing). If you want to do that you need to have the custom plate made. It is cheap under $40 but you have to illustrate it yourself in illustrator or a program like that! Also there are sepcific requirements for the file so read about that on boxcars website.

An alternative is I found this embossing plate but it is repeating quatrefoils and not just one. Hope this helps!
