Bug when printing to eps

I am printing a figure to eps format using the command
print(fig_h, '-deps','-r700',file_saveas)
However, the colorbar comes out in black and white when I view it (in multiple gs viewers). If I print to any other format, tif for example, the color bar comes out in colour as I would expect.
Does anyone have any idea what might cause a bug like this?
I would like to print to eps because this seems to best stick to the paper sizes and font sizes that I set.
Generally I am finding printing from matlab to journal article specifications difficult. Any useful information sources would be much appreciated.
Thanks, Charlie Hogg
version info: Matlab on 32 bit linux.

Does this work?
print(fig_h, '-depsc','-r700',file_saveas)

Of course. Thanks.
I'm still perplexed why -deps printed partly in colour and partly in grey, but I'm pleased I have it working.

Objects drawn with RGB-data are printed in color, while indexed colors are converted to black&white - or the other way around.

You can try with this command: print -depsc fig_h.eps
