    A friend used to print any photos I sold as prints for me and any
    commercial sales I just sent a .tiff file. Now he has stopped and as
    stopgap i'm using photobox, who just accept jpegs. I'm sure there must be
    better quality out there who print from the better quality tiff or raw? Any
    recommendations? Also I'm not sure if I should send to printer unsharpened
    or follow advice to set radius to 2 (for high res image of 300 ppi) and
    apply some sharpening. Photobox didnt even reply to that question.

    A jpeg at minimum compression will show no artefacts. Unless your
    software is disfunctional.

    I always apply just enough sharpening which comes in around a radius of
    0.6. YMWV depending on your resolution (your 300ppi tells no one
    anything about your image resolution.)
