I got help from Michael Trott. He suggested one could use:mText2D = 
 ImportString[ExportString[Cell[TextData[StyleBox["Mathematica", FontWeight -> "Bold"]], "Section"], "PDF"]][[1]]
I changed the text to "A", the format to "JPEG" and the size  to 24.
After that I used  "Best way to draw a raster image onto a curved surface" from Andrew Moylan. It worked.
Thanks to everyone.
