Thanks weavingmajor, that's my goal. SF accepts LAB colors too. Thank you to everyone else also. It's very encouraging to get so much feedback.

FWIW Spoonflower won't accept a CMYK image, just RGB. This is nice - I like the tweaking you've done... on screen anyways... hope you can get it nice onscreen AND nice in print both!
Tweaked the colors. Still not where I want it; but I don't feel like it's burning my retinas as much as before.
I get that your biggest frustration is the way (your icon) the screen image is glowing green and you want the customer to view it in a more realistic environment, I get that. Convert your uploaded design as a CMYK file. I never work in PNG, so can you even save your file to upload as CMYK? Can't help you there.....................You wrote: ...Photoshop is telling me it's out of gamut even though it came right off the Spoonflower color chart.... Its out of Gamut because the color is "dirty" with more "colorization code" than straight RGB (for brilliance with back lit ) The PS program thinks you are going to stay inside the box with an eventual application to the web and it is encouraging you to keep it within the RGB spectrum for best web/screen colors... It's messing with you my friend...
Well, I mean, don't change your fragile pale yellow to white just because I say... but because it will help the detail pop and some of the fabrics are off white anyway at the natural fiber... so you dont really want ANY flooding ink there...
Ok, First, ask yourself what printer you are hooked up to print on... Is it RGB or CMYK ink cartridges? Your file (I ...right clicked!... and brought it into Photoshop) is built as RGB (best for screen viewing) and up on top go to image, select convert file to CMYK (my printer is CMYK) and POOF! the color on the screen changes BIG TIME, much more muted and I printed the captured image (was 72dpi) at 150dpi 4 inches tall onto bright white paper and the image is still very wonderful, but yes darker - BECAUSE there is no angel holding the white/yellow bulb of a flash light behind the image... get it? You are giving yourself a headache (that's only a guess) so build the file using the colors specified on the SPOONFLOWER chart only, the visual be damned, and get a swatch... The double happy's and the green leaf line print the same density, the same color because the paper is soaking up the ink, flooding the paper with ink and so the color needs to be a different one selected for this small detail of perfection... Also the yellow is bleeding into the white (ahh, not white i see, change it to white) - as inks do... they spread and bleed (the term is flood)... Good luck, needs a little tweeking...
Ok, I printed it on paper. it came out darker, and more blue, than on the color chart. There are also some other things I don't like about the design. The double happiness came out almost as dark as the leaves, yuck. I've still got a lot of work to do on this one!
Now I'm really confused; I must have been really tired when I checked the color last night. It is #70FF4D; which is G10T14 on the Spoonflower color chart. My frustration isn't not knowing what the color looks like, since I can see it on the color chart; but knowing that it doesn't look right to people looking at it on Spoonflower. I could probably adjust my monitor to show the colors more truly while I'm working; but that doesn't resolve the real problem, which is showing them truly on the site. This isn't the first design I've had this problem with. I guess the only answer is to get it printed; but I'm still tweaking this design in other ways. PerhapsI will reduce it and print it on paper, then upload it to Flickr. At least it would give a better idea of the printed fabric.
Victoria, print it on paper. I printed it and it came out way less neon. There is good contrast between the green and yellow on the printed piece but on screen the contrast isn't as delineated. I guess the issue I see is anyone who looks at it to purchase is not going to know the color is many shades darker than what shows up on the screen.
This design is very beautiful by the way... Would be best suited for upholstery in a white setting, with a massive flower arrangement on the table... You know, that special chair that sets off the entire room... hmmm, I am looking about to see if I need a chair like that...
Hi Victoria. These electric greens will print much darker on fabric when pigment is absorbed into the fabric. Like Reds printing orange... These greens will not print neon when built by RGB or LAB inks. There will be no back lit illumination (as seen on your monitor) much the same as sunlight peeking thru stained glass windows to illuminate them... This is a good one for a swatch. Good luck with your apron!
It's #2ee600, and doesn't look at all neon on the color chart; although it sure does on my monitor too. I find a lot of the greens don't look the same on the monitor as they do on the color chart. it's sort of frustrating because the designs don't look right. The crazy thing is, Photoshop is telling me it's out of gamut even though it came right off the Spoonflower color chart.
70FF4D is this the color? Because it looks very neon green on my monitor.
I'm not sure why; but the green does not look this "electric" on the color chart.
