judging by your and Stu's experience, Lulu  can handle Scribus made PDF 
files rather well: would you consider them good enough to be listed on 
http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Scribus_Friendly_Print_Shops as a 
Scribus (PDF) Friendly Printshop? Could you perhaps provide some more 
details on what did you pay and for which services?

Lulu.com is an US company I guess (it's not very easy to find this info 
on their web page), do the others on the list know any comparable 
service providers on the European soil?
