Hello all. I am hoping to get some advice in pricing. I decided to print some of my work for the first time and sent two images (travel) to a local full service lab? When I went to pick the prints up the employees told me that while trimming and mounting the prints a lot of regular customers were raving about them. One person in particular asked them to give me his phone number because he wants to purchase a print of one of the images. I’ve never sold my work before, I’m not a professional.....yet ߙ
I will call this person soon to see what he¢s looking for but I’m trying to anticipate what questions I might face during this conversation and what questions I may have after the conversation, and these are the burning ones that I can think of right now.
1.) should I sent the image off to a more professional lab than the local one I used?
2.) should I frame and matte or just deliver the print and let the client choose?
3.) what is a good starting point for a pricing model after charging full price for materials and printing?
Thank you all so much in advance for any tips or advice.
