We are using the gocco/embossing powder technique for our invitations.  I’ve never seen a tutorial, but it’s pretty easy.  We are using the "clear detail powder"; it makes a nice shiny raised font.  The other cool thing about embossing is it makes the ink look a lot more vivid

Two big things to look out for would be; make sure you have enough powder on the ink and make sure you aren’t melting it too much or too little.  You can see it start to "bleed" when it gets too melted and when it needs to be melted more it looks grainy.

I say just experiment a little until you get the hang of it.
