I guess you're using the latex macro package with (pdf)tex.  If not, 
buy a TeXbook and take a holiday.  You wish to use the picture 
environment to place stuff absolutely as part of a running text.  For 
absolute positioning on the background of a page, check e.g. the 
bophook-package on CTAN:macros/latex/supported/bophook at
(disclaimer: by me).
