A Paragraph sounds like it can also do what your script does. That way, you
can have platypus handle the page layout and have Paragraph format your text
rather than manually positioning text strings. drawString and pdfgen are
more direct ways to interact with pdfs.

The chapters 5 and 6 in the userguide have examples of using flowables (like
Paragraph) with platypus.
