  This is probably more a plain TeX question (for which I am not a good
specialist -but there are some on the list!) that a PSTricks one.

  As far as I understand, I would do something like:

\input epsf
\input pstricks


    \vbox{%                      % Or "\vbox to 2in{" to fix the width
      \hbox{A Lovely Low Rancher}
      \hbox{A lovely, low rancher}}}}

  Sorry for the delay required before your message reach the list. But, as you
know, since I closed the list to non subscribers to avoid spamming messages,
only messages with registered addresses are sent directly to the list.
Otherwise I must do something manually for each message (for which I have not
a permanent access). Your registered address is <john at wexfordpress.net> (not
wexfordpress.com, not service@).
