Sorry, haven't seen such a thing but can't they (the printing vendors)
accept postscript as well? I know some (academic) publishers requires
you to use specially formatted TeX templates which, of course, is not
the same thing but I would be surprised if the printshop wouldn't accept
postscript since the resulting dvi files (from the *TeX output) are
usually translated to postscript (or maybe I'm behind the times...).
Postscript is a vector format (all text, figures and pictures [if the
picture source is in vector format] are made up of lines and bezier curves).
