I'm creating artwork for an exhibition. I converted the artwork to CMYK and saved it as tiff with LZW compression. The file was foggy and dull when I saved it but looked fine when I opened it in PS(CC). Still I sent the Tiff file for print but it turned out to be blueish and dark as compared to my artwork. So what is the process to save such files for print?

I hope you will be getting some professional replies. If not try my recommendation.
Save the file in RGB and let the CYMK conversion be done by the printing office.

I have had photos printed on RGB printers (photo labs) as well as on CYMK printers (larger formats). All worked well with TIF or uncompressed JPG with RGB profile.

Are usually work in pro photo format, save with no compression. Let the file be big, it’s OK. Then make sure that the printer is using a good profile for the medium chosen.

profoto color-profile you mean,I guess ( is not a format, as far as I use it). File type and compression method/degree determine file-size. The profile is not significant.
