    seems like everyone else is too expensive

    seems like everyone else is too expensive :o

    my pricing structure:

    first one $ = " of long side
    after first, $ = " of short side
    for each image of each size

    example 6 prints of image "A" at 5 x 7 = $32

    2 prints of image "A" at 8 x 10 = $18

    total = $50

    I have had prints up for sale only a few times. This is what the place charged (in inches, and U.S. dollars, unmounted and unframed, signed limited edition prints)"

    Prints on 5x7 paper: $60
    ...8x10 paper: $100
    ...11x14 paper: $200
    ...16x20 paper: $500
    ...20x24 paper: $800

    Remember that galleries take a huge chunk of this (40% where I have put stuff up), so the prices are "high" in my book.

    I sold three color 20x24s (a one-off series of three related images for $2,000), and the entire limited edition of five black and white 15x15s, at two separate shows. (Kept the wall display print for mahself, and it is on my wall.) Strangely enough, when I put up smaller (AKA cheaper) prints of the work that I really consider to be my best at a third show, not one sold. Lots of compliments, but no sales. All 35mm hand held stuff; journalistic, diaristic, road travel, street, nightclubs, etc. Guess it is the kind of stuff that is fun to look at, but not something you would want on your wall. This sort of stuff I am going to start putting into books instead. Gallery walls are not where it belongs, IMO. Bad decision putting it up, but they offered the space and that is what I had been working on, so up it went. People love that IMO pretty unimpressive large-scale fine art shit that many people can do well, but have little love for the really great and difficult to make journalistic shots.

    Usually un-matted, but I'll cut the matt & mount them for a nominal amount - to cover costs & time, or arrange for matting/framing if requested at cost.

    Sometimes I'll throw in matting/mounting if someone's buying more than one image, and I have in the past sold sets of prints ready matted.

    I sell 7x7" prints through the coop gallery I belong to for $150, matted and framed. Interestingly, I have recently begun exhibiting 10x10 prints there for $200 and the bigger ones are selling better. I would like to get about twice that much for them, but the city I live just does not seem to support a higher price. I guess you have to get what you can.

    the last print i sold through a gallery was a matted/framed 8x10
    ( mat was 8ply frame was 16x20 ) and it was $300.
    that was a few years ago and the print was hand printed &C.
    these days i am having my work printed in a different way
    and it is more affordable so more people can enjoy it ..
    i can't really say where or how it is printed ... but the place
    that is selling them for me will mat/frame things for the buyer as well.

    I was thinking along the same lines as you!
