You need the Microsoft Office 2013 VL and Windows 7 VL media. Use your MAK or KMS keys.
On initial OOBE do a ctrl-shift-F3, when finished your customizations
sysprep /oobe, shutdown the computer and then boot with a bootable CD/DVD and capture the state of the machine.

Personally I am not a fan of thick images and use the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) and the Office Customization tool http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179097.aspx

Prepare your systems using a virtual machine to help eliminate some hardware dependencies . This also gives you the use of snapshots where you can always roll back and you won't be affected by rearm counts

Please note that VL media only has re-imaging rights
