I have not been able to find any off the shelf programs that will do this for you. I suspect that you will need a custom script to be written. This should be any easy task.

Photoshop has the ability to build templates with text variables. You set some text on an image, then tell Photoshop to replace that text with the data in a text or CSV file and output the results.

I think you would need a script to poll your mysql db and generate a CSV, load your image on a background layer, and output as a jpg with an appropriate name.

I don't script very well myself, so I rely on services like ODesk, or elance.

Hope this helps.

With imagemagic you can create more or less what you want with a "simple" command.
From php you can run imagemagick with an exec() or shell() command.
