Images are uploading with a high enough resolution

I'm using black-and-white illustrations for a client's product images. A sample of the original artwork is attached (Envelope) and one of the updated versions that I altered in Photoshop to be blacker so they stand out better (Envelope group). Both files are 3508x2480, 795KB.
They look fine until I upload them then they look rubbish. The link takes you to one of the product pages. 
Anyone have any suggestions about how I can get the web versions to look better?
Thank you!

I couldn't see a link in your post, but Squarespace recommend that you save the images with a size of 2500px wide at a "high quality" setting (95+ in most image tools, without additional compression) before uploading them.

This is because images are resized into a range of sizes up to 2500px after upload and, as part of the upload/resizing process, the file will be compressed. For more information, see Formatting your images for display on the web.
