Most of your problem is probably that you are using a Postscript printer
(LJ 4MV) and the PC folks are using "office" printers (non-Postscript).
Your TIFFs from Photoshop should work ok, though. Just remember to:
1. Save them as PC file types (check the PC box when you "Save as...)
2. Keep the file names in the 8.3 format (filename.tif) <-- note the "tif".
3. Save the files on a PC formated disk.
BTW: Always save your raster (bit map) files from Photoshop as
TIFFs. Some PC office apps (word processors, etc.) don't like Mac
EPSs for bit maps (actually bit mapped EPSs are non-standard. TIFF
is definitely the cross-platform standard for raster graphics & EPS
is the standard for vector graphics.)
I use files created on Macs all the time, but I'm a professional and have
the software and experience to understand the little quirks between
Macs & PCs. Actually... the only files that I have consistant trouble
with are Corel files created on PCs!!! Go figure :-)
