[R] pointsize?

A while ago there was a thread on graphics. I complained that the plots
produced by dev.print had symbols and fonts that were too small. I said 
I had been using par(cex=2), but the advice was to use pointsize. I have
tried ps, is that what was meant?

dev.print(file="~/junk.ps", horizontal=FALSE)

No matter how big I make ps (40,60...), the biggest size  plotsymbol
I get is a circle with a diameter of 2 mm.

Is there a way to get big axis labels and plot symbols using par(ps=)?
Or was something else meant when I was told to use pointsize?

Thanks very much for any help.
