I am using several figures created using Matplotlib in a LaTeX document that I compile with PDFTeX. When I print the compiled PDF, I find that the figure quality is not optimum on some printers, although text gets printed well. Here is an example:

Printed PDF with poor quality figure

The axis labels in that graph have a much poorer print quality than the figure name and caption. Is there a way I can improve the print quality of the Figure? Thanks!

    Can you add a minimum compiling example (.tex + a small figure) so that we can reproduce the PDF ourselves? – ojdo Jun 15 '16 at 15:40

    Thanks all for the suggestions. I seem to have found a workaround for this problem: the figures get printed with good resolution if I use Acrobat Reader instead of Preview on my Mac. – Girish Kulkarni Jun 20 '16 at 14:01
