  I was curious, but a search didn't turn up any preferred (or assumed)
color space for the D-LAB.  However, I believe you are correct ... a color
space with a smaller gamut should add the extra saturation you are missing
when you send them Adobe RGB values.  It is likely (also a shame) the color
space assumed may be "sRGB" ... after all, any print service worth its salt
should be able to accommodate any color space you may edit with (...
leastwise, AdobeRGB, although not print its entire gamut ...).  What is
their response if you ask them? ... some sort of expression of ignorance?

cheerios ... shAf  :o)
