    Export from FW as TIFF24, then open the TIFF in Photoshop, convert to
    CMYK mode, and save. Some colors will be changed, since CMYK cannot
    reproduce as large a range as RGB.

    don't forget to find out what resolution you need to work in from the
    printers e.g. 300ppi or whatever and do that from within fireworks before
    exporting as tiff. otherwise if you work at 72ppi in FW then you'll have
    really naff looking printing!
