I've looked through these .ps files and they come out correctly. I just thought that somehow TeXShop is creating a .ps file and that it might be possible to use another printer instead of what it usually does to create the.ps file. As for Adobe Distiller I don't know anything about calling it from the command line.

By default simpdftex removes the .ps file after ps2pdf creates the .pdf from it. It's beginning to sound like all you want is the .ps file. To do that check the `Save Postscript File' box in TeXShop->Preferences->Engine->TeX + dvips + distiller. It may be possible to use the Adobe Distiller instead of ps2pdf IF you know exactly how you want it invoked from the command line.

Good Luck,
