The problem with printing from applications is that for now applications
send a pdf to cups, which then can only use pdftotext to produce a text
document for the embosser, with the obvious issues. I still have to
convince cups people that applications should be given the choice of
just sending their document. In the meanwhile, you can just directly
submit your document from the command line:

lp foo.txt
