Is it possible that the font your text files come out as (as rendered
by the printer) is a thicker or heavier font than the font you are
using in your TeX/LaTeX documents? I assume when you print plain text
is comes out in some default printer font, whereas when you print
postscript, I think the file contains the font information. (We're
beginning to go beyond my understanding, so I could be wrong about
this.) But, I do know that the default TeX/LaTeX font is computer
modern (typically) and it is a pretty light font.
