PHP Image manipulation

Avg Bid (AUD)
Project Budget (AUD)
$30 - $250

Project Description:
I am looking for someone to Develop php code to take a data base entry and create an image and output that image as a pdf and jpg.
A sample of a similar process can be found at the Vista Print site where a user uploads an image and is then shown what the image looks like on a mug.
I wish to replicate this, mug and all, but draw some the text from a mysql database.
steps required:
incorprate text drawn from MySql DB into image template, create that image. We call that image 1
wrap image 1 around a mug, create that image, we call that image 2
save these images
Perhaps this is a one off discreet piece of this project, perhaps you wish to get involved more in other aspects, let us talk.

I am looking for a price and turnaround estimate.

Your ability to talk to me about this and about what I want is of more value than the price. I will take a higher bid that I am taking with confidence, rather than a cheap bid because it is cheap.

Don't let the name put you off, this is a real project and the payment will be quick.

Experience with the Twitter API would be nice also.

Open up some dialogue, show me you actually understand, or want to understand what I am doing here, and I am happy to pay what the job is worth.
