By default ps2pdf output`s' in the letter page size and combined with
the above mentioned shrink option can reduce the font size on print -
assuming you are printing onto a4 paper (common in India). You can make
the pdf to a4 size using
ps2pdf -sPAPERSIZE=a4 file.ps

In case the .ps file itself is not in a4 size, you might have to use
other options while creating the .ps file.
