Collating Text and Images

I have an interesting problem.  I have a (one) text file containing multiple
reports.  I have multiple TIF files, one for each page in the report file.
What I would like to do is merge the two files into one print job so that I
get a text page then the corresponding image, then the next text page, then
the next corresponding image, etc.  Currently we have 2 people doing the
collation by hand every day; this would save am immense amount of labor at
our shop. The work is being performed on an HP-9000 running UNIX and I can
read and process the text file, but can not figure out how to insert the
images into the print stream.  Can anyone help me out?
