The problem can be at various places.

Do you convert EPS to bitmaps? Try not to
Do you use small patterns over large area's? Try larger patterns
Do you print bitmaps via a Postscript printer? Try PCL

to compress PDF files created by Scribus by a factor of ten or more. I have been unable to see any degradation in the results. 

I hope this helps.
