Dymolabelers work great for small areas. If you need larger sections of text and you want really crisp braille, you might take a look at Embossables:

Embossables are clear, sticky-backed plastic braille paper that you can run through your embosser. I love using them to create accessible business cards. I emboss the braille onto the Embossables, cut them out, and stick them to the back of the cards.

I love Embossables. ;-)

Swell paper never produces very good Braille. You
could get a dymo Braille labeler and make labels you stick on?
