Upload & Sell: Off
If you create calendars for clients, how much do you sell them for and how often does a client purchase them?
Most of my photo sessions are pet photography and pet calendars are popular, but again buying a generic calendar is inexpensive. I give out Best Of Year pet calendars to local businesses as advertising and have sold a couple at cost to friends.
I saw one person's web site where they were pricing for $300. Hard to believe a customer would pay that for a calendar. I suspect most people think of calendars costing towards $20.
If the client were to have purchased 12 prints at 11x14, that would have cost them a pretty penny.
If I have already edited and processed the photos that would be used in the calendar, then the extra work for the calendar itself is minimal, but I do wonder what people pay for calendars using photos from a session.
Your thoughts and experiences appreciated.
