FYI it's just LEGO, not LEGOs or LEGO's
As in:
A collection of LEGO.
Some pieces of LEGO.
A pile of LEGO.

Like wood:

You mean edible paper? Yeah, basically print on something then transfer it to the brick.

Maybe cakes in your town..

Here we see depth in printed cake surfaces
More expensive printer, I surmise.

The article I cited claims ([citation needed] :-) that the edible paper dissolves rapidly on moist frosting. That would lead the overlying ink to settle onto the not-so-flat frosting layer, presenting the illusion of depth.

Bricks aren't going to go through a printer (duh).

1) Print reversed image onto plastic (e.g., transparency). Use mechanical transfer (rubbing) to put the image onto the LEGO brick.

2) Print directly onto transparent labels (sticky-backed). Trim as needed, then peel and stick onto the LEGO brick.
