I've found the same problem. In my case I found that printing screenshots at 600dpi on an HP4 and then reproducing them on a Xerox 5090 gave horrible results. To get around this I printed my screens at 300dpi on the HP -- when these shots went through the photocopier they produced better results than the 600dpi versions.
