This may be such an elementary question, but I want to be sure. I did some editing in ACR and turned to grayscale, then in PS I checked the file profile and its Gray Gamma 2.2.  I just wanted to confirm this is the right file type and will still print ok.  I am gathering it shouldnt be sRGB because well... there isnt any RG or B.. but wanted to be sure.



thank you!!!

No, this is REALLY bad.  You cannot possibly guarantee how other devices (your clients' screens, or more importantly, your lab) will handle that non-standard colour profile.

Even if you insist on converting to BW in raw (and I strongly advise against it, BW conversion should be done in Photoshop where the control is so much more exquisite) you should convert to sRGB afterwards if necessary.
