If you are refering to an outside reprographics bureau, I use PDF. On OSX I have two choices. The OS will generate a PDF from the print window but these files are larger than those generated by Acrobat.

For multiple sheets I use Acrobat Distiller. My version runs under Classic OS9. I print all sheets to Postscript and then distill them into one PDF file.

I just distilled 9 sheets of 24x36 into a single PDF file of less than 1MB. I then email this to the reprographics bureau.

This is also how I archive a project. It allows viewing by anyone who has Acrobat Reader.
