Vinyl (PVC) is a thermo plastic and will go soft/melt at between 100 and 260 deg C.

In this soft state a pattern can be impressed by rolling with a patterned roller. When the Vinyl cools and solidifies it will retain the pattern.

Print with suitable (rubber-based?) inks.
Emboss while manufacturing the sheet.
Emboss or engrave afterward.
