p.1 #1 · how do you charge for your larger prints?


I was wondering if I could get some feedback from some of you. I have a client and they would like some much larger prints than I normally print made for them. I was curious how all of you figure out what to charge. This is for ready to hang landscape prints

For example if a smaller print costs you 100 dollars to get made and you normally charged 200 dollars how would you charge for a print that costs you 250 dollars. Would you still double the price and charge 500 dollars or would you just aim to make the same profit and charge 350? Or do you have a sliding scale where you charge half way between etc.

I am not trying to be nosy about how much you get for a print just how the size of the print figures into what you charge. Thanks for any help. Brian

Brian,
In addition try the landscape forum. Lots of folks there who sell their work.

personally, i would'nt necessarily "double" it. for example, say 20x30 is $100 (framed and all) and you charge $200. Then 30x60..costs $200 ...charge $350~375.

It allso depends on # of prints, do you want repeat business etc. If its small quantity, naturally no discounts. if its multiple you would want to factor that in...unless you're not getting a volume discount from your framer.

What do you mean by 'ready to hang'? Are you matting, glazing, and framing them? Because the framing costs should be way more than the printing costs. And are you talking of their image or yours?

I print, matte and frame my own prints. I sell my larger prints ( 24x30 and up ) at a much larger price to cost ratio than my smaller prints. People who can afford the larger prints are much less price sensitive than people looking at bargain smaller prints. I typically sell larger prints for $600 and up, but my costs are no where near those prices.

By ready to hang I mean not a print but either framed or canvas which is mounted or I have been printing a lot on metal which are not framed but can be mounted directly on the wall. I am not doing any of that work. I just take the picture but have someone else get it ready to hang. So when I say the print costs 100 dollars that includes all of the printing and mounting options included. Thanks

Are you just uprezzing or putting more effort into having a large print look good?

This can involve more proofs where you are tweaking color, noise control, sharpening, and any artifacts that become apparent in the larger sizes.

Personnally I don't like looking at digital noise or jpeg artifacts (or other) blown up to large sizes like 24x36 and larger....

Also consider that a large print could have its own light source illuminating it and you may want to compensate for tungsten vs halogen or other lighting.

This is all additional labor that can add significant costs to a one of a kind print.
