Hi Ben,

Here is a Stata/LaTeX-Solution. The following Stata-Code produces graphs.eps - 
completely automated and reproducable. You may change the width of the graphs 
to get them all on one page. 

Assuming that you have 12 graphs saved as memory graphs with names g1, g2 ... 
g12:


---------------------------------------------
file open graphs using mygraph.tex, write

file write graphs "\documentclass{<whatever>}" _n
file write graphs "\usepackage{graphicx}" _n _n
file write graphs "\begin{document}" _n

forv i=1/12 {
  graph display g`i'
  graph export g`i'.eps, replace
  file write graphs "\includegraphics[width=4cm]{g`i'}" _n
}

file write graphs "\end{document}" _n

!latex graphs
!dvips -o graphs.ps graps.dvi
--------------------------------------------------------

(Code not tested, but you get the idea)
