I am not sure if this is a problem with Stata. I just used the following
command with no problems whatsoever:

graph export avg_wages.ps,  mag(175) orientation(landscape)
fontface("Palatino Linotype") replace logo(off) tmargin(.5) lmargin(.5);

Perhaps using fontface instead of font is the key here.
