You correct for the master in an RGB working space. Then you load a soft proof of one of the five output needs and if necessary create output specific adjustment layers based on that soft proof. Easier to do in Lightroom thanks to a true before and after preview. You can just create a duplicate of the master image in PS, view it as such (your Before), then edit on the original, don't save the dupe after corrections. I'd place these output specific edits in a layer set with the name of the output profile used and it's rendering intent. Save off an iteration with everything baked into single layer doc, ideally in output color space based on the profile you used for soft proofing. Send that to (fill in the blank).

Re: How to achieve these vivid colours?

Ah ok, so lab mode seems then it is just a mode to work in but not really to print on. If i were to go to print i would have to switch to rgb mode and then try to match rgb to my soft proof, correct? If not then im more confused than i thought i was.
Thanks for that info though.

There is no such thing as either a Lab capture or output device. A device may feed you Lab data but it's been converted from RGB if a capture device.
