Can an AS 400 Cobol Print Output Have Graphics without APF

I work in an AS 400 COBOL shop. We don't have AFP. Is there a way for a printout  (spooled)
to have different fonts, graphics, colors, etc.?
Without buying additional software. If so, could you show some sample code so I can get an idea of how to proceed?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

what printers are you using?

the capabilities you want to include within your documents will depend on what they can support, and the print composition languages that they support...

all afp provides is a method to specify the document layouts, and embed the desired print control commands... you can write them directly to the spool yourself... with the disadvantage of tieing your self to a articular level of printer/technology...
