    I take my time and try to enjoy it. Sometimes I genuinely enjoy it but when it sucks I get out.

    Probably 4 to 6 prints that are average, with maybe 2 of those being above that. I don't factor in toning time, or extra washes, drying, etc.
    I usually wait until i'm finished printing and they've dried to tone, just to be able to judge things a bit better. Also it helps me to think about the image and what I wish for the end result to finally be before I commit to toning, even if it is just a selenium soak. With polytoner this becomes much more important. At least I think it does, to me.

    1-2. Making up a batch of 8-10 prints is a whole day affair for me.

    Quality prints, 2-4 when they goes for exhibition or for gift/selling.
    Just for "memory prints" to myself, perhaps 4-8. These are good, but not really-really finished. But they're acceptable under the glass frame.

    0 to 10 of the same print. Depends on how things go. I don't really count washing as time in the darkroom

    sometimes about a print / hour
    and that includes a handful or extras / print ...

    like ian,
    i was taught how to mass-print like a human-mini-lab.
    once you learn how to, it isn't too hard ...

    It takes as long as it takes.

    Personally, I have found that trying to keep a print rate up to some theoretical nominal rate is counter-productive and destroys the fun - it is a hobby after all

    I now work on a single Neg until I am reasonably happy with a print - and then leave it around for a while to see if I still like it after a period from a few days to a couple of weeks.

    Often, I change my mind about how a print should look after it has been around for a while.

    I can repeat this iterative process quite a few times, while others are right first time (but not very often )

    I find that my own mood will often define a print, from the same negative one print will be light and happy, another dark and ominous, yet each is right for the day it's made. I never kept notes on what was the best exposure for a print, because the next time I dealt with it, I might not want that.

    Do postcards count?

    Every negative is different - even if they are all well exposed and developed.

    As a result, the number per session is always different.

    If the target is prints of a good technical quality (record shots etc.) than the volume can go up considerably, especially when I can leave the darkroom mostly set up over several days of printing.

    You should have seen me go when I used to do colour wedding proofs .

    Yes, when it comes to postcards, after an adjustment phase of finding where I want to go (which might be much different from where I wanted to go at the time of capture) I can print 50 postcards in about 2 hours. The last exchange took longer since I sent contact prints. That took me 4-6 hours.

    Usually I get 4-6 lith prints in an evening session of 3-4 hours. These are prints which I feel comfortable to show others.

    Cheers
