Whatever you do to resample it; their software will likely resample it again, even if a little. I suggest leave it like it is. I would sharpen it well because printing could soften the image a bit.

The reason for resizing is that, if done properly to the exact dimension it will print, you get to decide what is getting cropped out of the image, if anything, instead of leaving that decision to the printer.

IMO, TIFF is a wasted of zeros and ones.

Other than making for a smaller file size, how is a raw image converted to a lossy jpeg superior in any way to a raw image converted to tiff?
