For those of you that track the sales of your prints, what size prints do you sell the most? Does the ratio of your print sizes sold online differ from your offline sells?

EDIT:
I would image that print size sells would greatly differ from client weddings & portraits VS your own artistic/landscape/etc photos.

1) Best selling sizes for your own artistic works?
2) Best selling sizes for client shoots?

4x6 easily.

8x10 is a close second.

ETA: I shoot weddings and portraits. Also, I give the clients a disc so 75% of my sales come from friends and family which is why I see more 4x6 sales than anything else. The 8x10 sales are traditionally when the bride and groom order through me. And I will say I've had a huge increase in 11x14 lately so those may actually by outselling 8x10s this year.

As the customer re orders the prints get bigger ... from 8x10 to BillBoard.
Keep that in mind on original shoot and what format you use.
Thats why Commerical ad work is done MFDSLR.
Personal work is FFDSLR.
Vacation etc work is APS C DSLR.

5x7 and 8x10 run neck and neck. I price my 4x6 high so that I can up-sell the customer to a larger size so they can get the perception that they are getting more value by going larger.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

I don't do people, just nature stuff. My biggest sellers is my 8 x 12 called Tunnel View (external link) and my 12 x 12 called Lunar Eclipse (external link). I just printed a 30 x 30 of the Lunar Eclipse shot for another client.

My minimum is 16x20 (shooting portraits), so that's also my most common.

But my most satisfied clients are those who purchase 20x30 or larger. Kind of the way a Mercedes owner is more satisfied with his purchase than an Impala owner.

11x14 and 16x24 seem to be the biggest movers from my site.

5x7 sales jumped when I changed my pricing (increased) - it used to be 4x6 and 8x10, now it's 5x7 and 8x10 easily. All three do well, never really ranked them though in terms of actual sales and which one does best overall. I'd guess 5x7, then 4x6, then 8x10.

i no longer mess with 4x6s and soon i may even drop the 5x7s all together. They get the disc so why bother with something they can print themselves?

My most popular print size now is 8x12.
