This is a known problem in the original native version of
Mathematica for the Power Macintosh. 

This bug has been fixed in the current version ( 
of Mathematica for Power Macintosh, which has been shipping
for some months now. Contact Wolfram Research Technical
Support (support at to get an upgrade.

What is happening is that the magnification is getting 
reset to a very large value when you print.

Resetting it manually may restore things. You may also need 
to close your notebook and re-open it. It is best to use 
the "Open Special" command and check the "Ignore Binary Data 
in Resource Fork Option".

I hope this helps.
