WHY DO YOU USE THE sRGB COLOR SPACE?

We opted to use a common and accessible color profile that reproduces well with our processes. We understand there are other color profiles that offer a wider range of colors and are popular color spaces amongst pros. Starting as a consumer friendly printing service, we wanted to take away some of the complexities that can come with photo printing and this profile reproduces best with our method.
