Thanks, both!

I'm testing out pdftops now for a next round (am struggling a bit with 
margin settings but I think I've got it now); have in the mean time 
decided to export all pages as .pdf (to maintain the placement and 
layering of the images); convert them as .tiff in Gimp; export pages 
with text as eps and now the designer can put all together into an eps 
he can / he knows the printer can handle.

Re: why eps -- this is an unfortunate decision of the printer

After all Scribus held out well during this converting and reconverting 
marathon; no crashes and reasonably fast.
