Well there’s printing and then there’s printing. We’re the other printing.

Could be that you are using CMYK and 100% K and zero everything else isn’t going to give you a nice rich black but rather a ‘charcoal black’. Check your values in the software before you send it to the printer to at least be able to rule that issue out of the equation.
