compared with Writer, i think OpenOffice.org Draw is a better tool for
this job, but, IMO, Inkscape is (except printing) *much* better. (OOo
can't draw antialiased shapes, can't import our SVG clipart etc.)

Inkscape can convert text to paths.
version 0.40 can trace bitmpas, but i think converting text to paths is
enough in this case.
