No shared experience to offer, but my guess is that 600dpi bitmaps
ought to work well both for printing to pdf and for screen

Only, I don't know of a short road get there: preview lets you
select pieces from your document and export as pdf, but apparently
doesn't let you set resolution. My old version of Graphic
Converter does let you set resolution on importing eps files, but
apparently doesn't support pdf at all.
