| p.1 #3 · Question on purchasing mat, backing, and bags |
Framedestination is great.
Check out prices of other items in the gallery and nearby to get some sense of price points.
Figure your costs before committing to a price.
As a rough idea, an 8x10 my cost up to $5 to print.
A decent 11x14 frame/mat/glass might be another $40-50.
You want to make something.
For me, an 8x10 would not be worth my time and I'd start with an 11x14 print or 12x18. Costs are higher.
I'd think about pricing in the neighborhood of $150-275 framed. Subtract $75-100 for matted alone.
If you dont sell anything, you may have invested $50-70 each and will have other opportunities to show your work. I find that almost all of my sales have occurred after someone has seen a finished version (matted and framed). And the pleasure of someone deciding to spend money on something I create is high.
Good luck. Maybe a very nice opportunity.
