    Do you charge less for subsequent prints of the same image?

    I'm getting my prices in order, and I have another question for all of you.

    Do you charge less for subsequent prints of the same image? Or do you charge the same? Why?

    Thanks,

    Dallas

    What is the context? When I work commercially I charge the same for each print, but for fine art limited edition work, the price increases as each one sells.

    Less, because I print each picture individually. Once I lock in on an ideal print of the image (time, filter, dodging and burning, etc), I can easily print extra copies using the same settings.

    If it is reprints at the same time of family portrait work I will discount subsequent prints.

    I always discounted portraiture pakages and the individual prints were slighty higher. So, again, whatever the market will bear.
    Thank you.

    Just printed a portrait (B&W), took about an hour to get it right, took 20 minutes to make 7 more. I would discount at time of order. Later reprints, full price for first then discount quantity.

    if i have to print multiple images for the same "job"
    i charge more for the first, print mainly because
    the first print takes all the work
    ( exposure, burning, dodging, development methodology )
    the additional prints are just a repeat and cost less.
    i always make 1-2 extra and file them away,
    so if one of the prints is damaged or something happens to
    i have an extra ...
    and so if additional prints are needed at a later date ...
    i can put a finished print in a water bath and have something to "match"
    my new prints too ( for dry-down ) ...

    if it is "artwork" it depends whether it is
    something that i have a printer make for me, or i print myself.
    if i print it myself, i don't do editions &C so if i make a print ... and that's it
    if it is a "reproduction" the price stays the same, or increases as my overhead increases ...
