Hi!
I have the 60 D.
I’m able to sharpen my photos and get them looking great on my monitor. When I print, photos are not sharp. (Color is fine) I’ve tried multiple pro labs, all with same result. Why are my printed photos not sharp? Has anyone had this problem? Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?
My appreciation to whomever can help!!!

For starters, what size(s) of prints are you making, and what print resolution are you using? Some lab printer services will recommend 300 PPI for best quality. 300 PPI should also be more than sufficient for most home desktop inkjet printers.

In other words, at 300 PPI (pixels per inch), an 8x10 print should be made from an image file having pixel dimensions of 2400 x 3000 pixels. And a 4x6 print would require a 1200 x 1800 pixel image size to print at 300 PPI. But in many cases sizing your prints at even 200 PPI will still produce a good quality image.

If you're editing and cropping an image to a specific print size, look at the finished images' properties and make sure the pixel dimensions are sufficient to provide at least 200 PPI (DPI) for the specified print size. At 100 PPI or lower your print quality will suffer, even though the image looks fine on your monitor. Monitors tend to only need something like 72 or 96 PPI to display an image properly.

I take all my pictures in raw mode and sharp my images in Photoshop. Never used the camera settings.

Please Guys, I need your help. A plastic piece of my 60d broke today. Not an important part though. It’s a tiny plastic that covers the battery.

If you feel that you must sharpen your jpegs in-camera, keep your adjustments on the low end of the scale. Sharpening requirements can vary widely from image to image. On the camera's scale of 0 to 7 I think I might set it no higher than level 3.

The best way to deal with sharpening is in post-processing and editing, ideally working with RAW files. And it's still easy to over-sharpen if you're not careful. If you look at a photo and can tell that it's been sharpened, then it's probably been over-sharpened.

Remember also that sharpening is NOT a substitute for a properly focused image.

I use a User defined profile.

Start with the Standard profile and modify:

Sharpness to +7

Contrast to +3

Saturation to +1

Color Tone to -1

Suits my personal preferences, and does not produce over-sharpened halos.

However, I shoot RAW and do my own Post-Processing using the free and very capable program Darktable (can be found at Darktable.org, word of caution do not be tempted to download any 3.x variant, they are not ready for prime time. I use a 2.6.x variant).
