Ah - some acetate is not heat-resistant and some is. Anything that is designed to go through a laser copier should be embossable with no problems, but some of the stuff sold as covers or clear cardstock isn't. I have had some success heat-setting inks with a hairdryer on regular acetate, but I don't think that would be hot enough for embossing .

I did read a thread before Christmas where someone (Chautona, I think ??) had some success embossing with regular acetate and doing it in 30 second blasts. I need to get ready for work, so I can't look back to find that post just now.
