We use dvips and ps2pdf (GhostScript 5.50) on Mutopia which gives nice output
when printed, but when viewed in Acrobat Reader (and even gv to a lesser
extent) it looks quite bad. Have you tried printing the pdfs out?

Using the above method means that the fonts are encoded into the ps/pdf as
bitmaps (300dpi I think, by default). It would be nice to have them embedded
as scalable fonts, but no one's come up with a simple way of doing this yet,
