When I transform XSLFO with FOP I can send the output to PDF or AWT

I'm trying to use the same fonts to generate graphics directly since
I'm programmatically generating the input to my FOP process and I
don't actually need the XSLFO process.
If you know the position of all your text in advance and don't need
XSL-FO, then FOP seems like the wrong tool for the job. Why not use
iText, which has an API for creating PDF?
I know exactly what text I want to print, what size I want it, and
exactly where I want it on the page.
I tried putting the text on an image and putting the image on a Swing
panel and it always comes out fuzzy. It's even fuzzier if I try to
save that image to a file or send it to a printer.
I tried using the FOP classes for loading the font, using the
Java2DGraphicsState, FontInfo, and FontMetricsMapper objects to
generate the text. It's always rendered blurry. What could I be missing?
