Most large print houses want you to bring them an 8-bit jpeg image in the sRGB color space. This great for them because that’s a small file with a very limited color gamut. Color gamut itself is a very complicated subject. There are debates on the topic all over the place. But this is science, my friends, there really is no debate. A 16-bit Adobe 1998 tiff file will give you a larger color gamut file with a limited possibility of color banding.
The sRGB color space was developed as standardization of monitors and televisions back in 1996. If you’d like all the math and science behind this development you can click here.
The 16-bit Adobe 1998 Tiff file is a much larger colorspace. This color space can be printed now and in some cases, colors in the Pro RGB color space can also be printed.
What does all of this mean to you? Simple… I wish to print from 16 Bit Adobe 1998 tiff files in order to give you the highest possible quality print. Vivid colors with no banding. Don’t worry… if you do not have files like these? I can still assist you. My prints will set themselves apart from what you can obtain from printers that only wish you to give them 8-bit sRGB jpegs.
