Topic: Problem with Transparency pdfing from Indesign

Hey there,
I think no-one has posted on this elsewhere but it's hard to tell.

I am learning about pdf's as I go so please suggest even basic solutions as my knowledge is patchy. I'm working on a 15 page Indesign doc with 50 approx placed files in it. I had placed pdf's there originally and only recently worked out that was why the final pdf of the indesign file was so huge!
I then swapped out all the placed files for eps' and when I did that creating the final pdf had issues. Three eps files with transparent text that overlaid each other came out weirdly opaque.

I've tried different types of pdf: 1.3, 1.5, press, web; changed the transparency blend settings; changed the colours but no success.

Any advice greatly appreciated.
