If the damage isn't too bad you can carefully file/sand down the damaged
areas so they are the same height and it will print better. The one
on the following picture had that problem and is readable but not great.
With a little more work probably could be a little better by reshaping/
flattening individual letters but decided to stop at good enough.

This is my repair with a stick on foot.
