I've read a couple of the responses so far and here's yet another idea.  

Start by  placing your text on its own transparent layer.  This allows you to 
use any of the logo scripts found in <Image>/Script-fu/Alpha_to_Logo menu 
directly, or to deal with the text separately if none of the existing logo 
scripts appeals.

To make your text appear 3-dimensional, try making yet another copy of it on 
another transparent layer, blurring it by some modest amount, depending on the 
width of the lines, and using the blurred version as a bump map for the 
unblurred version. Make the bump mapped layer and the background layers 
visible and see how you like the result.
This is a fairly common idiom in the GIMP, and you will run into it often.
