Like the title says, what should the subject of the email be when asking for letters of rec? Also is it better to lead off with an email asking if they would be willing, stating that I could supply them with any additional materials they need (resume, PS, etc); or ask AND attach everything in the same email?
Assuming I am unable to first ask them in person.

I think it's fine to attach supporting material in the first e-mail. They will appreciate not having to ask/wait for it. As for the subject line, I've used "rec letter," but I would probably use "recommendation letter/request."

Mmm I think you should ask first. Attaching everything at once looks presumptuous and might annoy your recommender. I'd also use a more general subject line, like "request," but that's less important than the first part.
