With no gallery affiliation, published book, or major sales track record I'd
say a range from $350 to $1200 is a good place to start.

Subject: IS THIS TABOO? FW: PRICES FOR PT/PD PRINTS

DEAR LIST,
        Have I committed a faux pas? Is it taboo to ask about pricing? So
far
only Eric Neilsen has responded and I thank him for his help. As I am not
in the U.S. I don't really have much information on what prices people are
charging for their PT/PD prints in these sizes. I am only asking for
guidelines and any help would be greatly appreciated.
                                CHEERS!
                                        BOB

DEAR LIST,
        If this is too boring for list members, please feel free to e-mail
me off
list directly to bobkiss@caribsurf.com
        I am estimating making some Pt/Pd prints of my fine art photos for a
hotel
here in Barbados. The prints will be of my own limited edition photos so it
isn't just a print making cost but also a matter of selling my artwork, as
it were. I plan to make scans and enlarged digital negs output on a Image
Setter at 300 lpi. Would you help me by suggesting reasonable prices for
the following size prints considering that they have just completed totally
rebuilding the hotel at the cost of MANY millions? I don't want to over
price but I also know they have $$$. The price should include all costs
(scan, interneg, print, "value of artwork", etc) Though I am pretty well
known here I am not well known internationally as a fine art photographer so
please take that into account.

So here are the sizes:

IMAGE SIZE on PAPER SIZE YOUR SUGGESTED PRICE

16" X 20" on 20" X 24"
14" X 22" on 20" X 26"
11" X 14" on 16" x 20"

    Thanks in advance for this. I am coming up with prices but I have no
idea if they are in the ballpark. This may be because they play cricket
here in Barbados and there aren't any ballparks which I can use for
comparison. ;-))
                            CHEERS!
