Well I went and took a screen shot with the Gimp, on my system this turned
out close to 100dpi each way, though not exactly.

Then in the Gimp, I did an image rescale, 300dpi each way and increased
the width and height by 3 times

Next I took my camera, a 3 Megapixel canon and took a shot of the screen
and cut the relevant bit out here

An lastly I put them all into a Scribus document and made a pdf

Taking photos of screens with a camera needs a bit of work, but as far as
I can tell, the original 100dpi screenshot out of the Gimp is as good as
anything else
