You've misunderstood how the postscript() device works, I think.
You should do
... plot commands ...
dev.print(file="whatever") works more the way you're thinking.
Note, however, that for best results you either (1) want to set your
windows() or x11() device to the same size as your intended output file or
(2) use the postscript()/plot commands/dev.off() approach; translating
the stored plot commands to a new device isn't always WYSIWYG.
