I know, silly question, but I don't know the answer. Do I have to flatten an image before I send it to the printer? I ask because I'd like to be able to make color adjustments after looking at a print. Right now I flatten, then print, then if I want to make an adjustment I go into the history and open the layers back up.

No. You do not need to flatten in order to print.
