Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I want to export as postcript, and it is not working for me, is there any tip to follow? Also, I would like to have a big map of Buenos Aires City (200m/1000ft), but I can only export small sizes. I need to print this in a way that streets can be read. Is there a way to get the whole big map in postcript format?

Exporting requires individual rendering of the area. Large areas contains a lot of information and therefore takes a lot of time to render. Therefore this is disabled on the main server.

You can however use a tils stitching service such as BigMap to stich together prerendered tiles to a bigger map. This limits the options you have like exact scale and output file type. You can use a image manipulation program or a "print to PostScript" option to convert the file.
