If you're willing to use HTML syntax, you can design something pretty close using http://angularplasmid.vixis.com.  It's free, open-source, and comes with plenty of examples of how to create what you're looking for.  See below for examples:

The best-known software for this kind of task is commercial, namely DNASTAR's Lasergene Seqbuilder and Invitrogen's Vector NTI.

Free alternatives are e.g. Serial Cloner or the open-source software GENtle.

Another open-source software alike is UGENE. It has plasmid annotation functions, restriction analysis, cloning framework, etc.

This is probably not what you are looking for, but if you want a hands on coding solution, Biopython's Genome Diagram can do something a bit like that. There is a basic example in the Tutorial, http://www.biopython.org/DIST/docs/tutorial/Tutorial.html#htoc196

You got the free Web interface MGV2 which I find really easy to use and gives nice pics. Login as "guest" to give it a try

I'm surprised Circos hasn't been mentioned so far. The microbial genome recipe could be a good starting point..

Gene Construction Kit® (GCK) is a useful tool for plasmid mapping, cloning simulation, and DNA analysis. It has been consistently reviewed as being one of the easiest to use applications for simulating multi-step cloning operations, and offers extensive flexibility in the graphical formatting of DNA sequences - and - generating those colorful, customized plasmid maps seen in publications. You can easily copy and paste graphical maps from GCK to image editing programs, or even create hi-res PDF (Mac) or XPS (Win) exports from within the program.

It's been around since the mid-90's, and was one of, if not "the very first software" for performing these types of graphical manipulations of DNA sequence data.

More information, and a free demo version is available from the website: http://www.textco.com

Try WebDSV, it is a free web app, cross-platform, no registration needed, GenBank file format compatible.
