Depends on what your ultimate goal is.  But if you want any or all of

--  good printed documents

--  good onscreen presentations

--  ability to send copies to other people

two good choices are either (1) Print images to PDF direct from 
Mathematica or (2) Export figures from Mathematica to HD as EPS files, 
then create pages or slides using TeX or LaTeX or any other word 
processor and print these to PDF.

Once you've done this, with Adobe Acrobat you can then shuffle and edit 
and touch up pages if needed, and then anyone can view and print the 
resulting document on any platform with the free Acrobat Reader, or 
display it as a slide show using the excellent Full Screen slide show 
capability, all with good quality and small file size.

advertising  corrupts totally." (today's equivalent)
