If you've already converted to CMYK, the app will have to convert back to RGB again, then the printer will convert that back to CMYK. You might get equally good results by printing from the RGB version in the first place. Or not. But it's easy to test. ;-)
I intended on printing any portfolio items at the local printshop, with the idea that their printer would produce a higher quality than my desktop printer. Maybe I should just try my desktop printer first.

And yes, I do intend on including the URL.

Thanks a lot for the advice, guys.
