Nobody seems to have mentioned another way of achieving this, which is
to scale the original plot to suit the intended final size in the
document.  E.g. if you use:
> postscript(file="plot1.ps", width=4, height=4)
then the 4"x4" figure will 'automatically' have relatively larger
text and plot symbols.  This works well with x11() which is
subsequently printed, and pdf() also.
