Hi Valent!
Did you try Inkscape from trunk? pdf support is a bit better than in 
previous versions. (you can set dpi etc.)
Another thing you can try is to import the svg's (or bitmaps in worst 
case) into scribus and generate a pdf from there, although I'm not sure 
how good the svg support is in the stable version, so you might need to 
compile that one from source as well. The scribus output will give you a 
document in cmyk, unlike Inkscape were you'll just get rgb (even though 
the printer can just convert it for you in most cases).
Very nice posters, btw!
