I work in a print shop and I've never seen an image printed from a 72 ppi source file that didn't have aliasing, at a minimum. 150 ppi sometimes gives acceptable results. 200 ppi is the threshold where we stop warning the customer that their print might look like garbage. 240 ppi is the best balance between quality and managability in terms of file size. 300 ppi is fine but starting to get on the fat side.

The best thing to do is ask the printer what they need to get the best results from their equipment. I promise that they'll be very happy to tell you :-)
