You can save Tkinter.Canvases as PostScript using the
Tkinter.Canvas.postscript() method.

>>> import Tkinter
>>> root = Tkinter.Tk()
>>> canvas = Tkinter.Canvas(root)
>>> canvas.pack()
>>> rect = canvas.create_rectangle(10,10,100,100, fill="blue")
>>> retval = canvas.postscript(file="", height=100, width=100, colormode="color")
