You could get them thermographed, but that’s not exactly inexpensive. Offset printing and thermography tend to cost a lot for the setup fees, which can be $150 or more. That’s before they even start charging for each sheet of paper printed.

Perhaps you could just use a silver or white ink pen and hand-write the names? It could look nice with the embossed numbers if you have nice handwriting.

Otherwise you may have to set up a file on your computer with a gray background and white text, and print it on white paper so the background is being printed, not the text. Because there’s no such thing as white ink for a regular printer.

If you have a Gocco, silver ink looks really cool on dark colors (I did this with my photo booth mats that I posted about a few weeks ago).  I didn’t have much luck with white ink on a darker color, though, because the ink was a little thinner and faded into the paper too much.
