I purchased a a pack of "3D LUT Profiles' for adobe and I love the look of them. But I just found out that even though my exposted Jpgs looks amazing...but when I send it in for print (any any print shop), they look like trash. The profiles look fine in lightroom, look fine when export to jpg and open in finder...but not when I send for print? Is there something I'm missing?
I appreciate any input.

Is your monitor calibrated? Some labs offer their own profiles. Most labs expect sRGB color profile unless otherwise specified in their ordering instructions. At least that has been my experience.
Yeah, I'm sending in sRGB as my print shop expects them in that format. That was my first thought too...then I double checked and then sent to another print shop.
"they look like trash"
Exactly what do you mean by "trash?" Some more information would help. In the Export module File Settings> Color Space did you select sRGB or some other profile. Most print services require and expect sRGB profile image files.
Hi Todd! Below is a screen show of the brfor and after of running the profile in Lightroom. It looks great opening on finder and uploads to Facebook fine...but attaxched is also how it looks in the print dialog of costcos photo servoce. It looks like this on another print shop as well.
should have proof-read for fat fingers!
I think I found the issue. It doesn't happen when I don't run through JPG Mini Pro. The issue seems to be there on my maching as it doesn't happen too a friends maching running all the same programs and profiles. Even after running through JPG Mini, it looks fine on the computer...but doesn't when printing. Doesn't seem to be an adobe issue! Thanks everyone for taking the time to respond!
The screenshot you show for the print service upload indicates your are probably outputting JPEGs with Adobe RGB or ProPhoto RGB color profile and NOT sRGB. Try changing the below Color Space setting.
What icc profile are you setting during print?
