Well, let's see: First you say:

That would seem to match other opinions already expressed. But then you say:

So now we need two more definitions - one for "embossed" and one for 
"de-embossed." By "embossed" I assume you mean "raised" which is not 
the case here. But I have no idea what "de-embossed" means.
