I usually use Maperitive <http://maperitive.net> for large scale printing,
you just need to experiment with export-bitmap
<http://maperitive.net/docs/Commands/ExportBitmap.html> command though. The
result would not be PDF but you can easily print it as PDF. What I like is
that it already includes the copyright mark and scale bar.
