I'm sure we all know that images look brighter on our backlit computer screen than they do on paper.  When I print for myself, I often find I need to brighten the image considerably, so much so that it often brighter than I'd really like on my screen, but great on paper.

Do you brighten images before uploading to Zazzle or FAA, or do those companies take that into account when they print?

I always brighten images a bit before printing.  Based on my experience with RedBubble, it works out well.   The only thing the POD sites do automatically is keep most of the money :-)

what are you talking about?

- Redbubble and Zazzle you choose the % you want to receive
- FAA you set the price you want to receive for each size and also for the greeting cards

I calibrate my monitor, set Photoshop color space accordingly and ALSO set my printer with the same color profile and I rarely have any issues with the image looking not like the one on my monitor.  BEFORE I set my printer profile I was always brightening the image before printing.  Maybe that's a solution for you, maybe not, but it works for me.
