    The content of the prints is more important than the method in my experience. I've seen some rather bad (low resolution inkjet) prints sell well. The biggest hurdle is just getting out there to do it!

    Shop around and you can find Ektar cheaper than £3.90 (try Ag Photographic for starters). As for selling prints, I can't offer any real advice, although you could (and should ?) promote the "traditional shot on real film" aspect to differentiate yourself from digisnaps.
