I have some plots I'd like to print out and they would make

I haven't had time to take a close look at this. My initial
suggestions is to experiment with the paper size
import matplotlib.backends.backend_ps as backend_ps
backend_ps.defaultPaperSize = 11,8.5 # default is 8.5, 11
You may also have to specify a landscape portrait at print time, or
I'll take a closer look later.
