Hmm... that's interesting.  From what it describes, as long as it displays
well on the screen and prints well on the printer, you're using Type1
fonts, right?  Well, it so happens using `pdflatex` (rather than a ps to
pdf distiller) produces a pdf file that looks really nice, on screen and
on paper.  It's worth a try.  If that's not good, give a long shot to
`dvipdfm` (search on Freshmeat).

BTW, one or both of these programs have a problem embedding eps/ps images.  
Instead, one or both of them supports embedding alternate format images --
check the docs if you need to embed images.
