Possibly to have good lookin' high-resolution image-text in a pdf?

I basically have a 'rounded corner' design like you see in webpages.
On the top left corner of this image, I have a piece of text that says
"Private Information" at an angle... I use this whole image as a
background to a fo:block(s), it expands as needed to fill the block.
Anyway, the text part of the image looks bad when the pdf is viewed on
the computer at 100%.
Since its set as a background, I'm not sure what to do to make it look
better. Using the original 300px resolution for the image the designer
made in Photoshop results in a pretty, but huge picture that needs to
be scaled down anyway. So I'm using 72px/in and the image is about
600px wide to fit in the 8.5in width page-area. I also try using the
original 300 and scale down to 600px, but doesnt work out either.

Another way to do this whole image at 600px wide, as a
background-image and have it lookin' good?

I might resort to using rotated svg:text in a absolute-positioned
container overlayed on top of the top-left corner of the rounded
corner image if can't get 1 image to work.

Thanks for any ideas!,
