    60 x 40 framed print, how much?

    Would you sell a 60 x 40 print (framed) for $220 in a gallery?


    ....cause this seems to be the going rate over at Redbubble. Are people that desperate for a dollar? ..Or sale?


    Your thoughts please..

    thats very cheap.........it costs me about 40 ish bucks to enlarge to a 45x30 inch already, so a 60x40 inch would be a bit more, and framing or mounting on top.......another 60 bucks roughly..........

    I would go with the desperate for a dollar part

    I should add Redbubble take around $135 from the $220, this will leave you with a profit of $85. There are a few members at AP selling for this price on RB, what gives?

    Your thoughts please..
    Just wondering, cause those measurements are in cm which rounded are 23"x 16". So $220 is not a bad price, it is probably a 50% markup on the wholesale/manufacturing price from Red Bubble, which when you don't have to worry about printing, framing and matting. Plus the other print options as well.
    C&C most welcome, please if reworks are made post what adjustments etc have been made so I can learn from them

    Thanks

    Yes that's right, it will cost you $135 to purchase your own product from RB in that size (framed). Why on sell it for a profit of only $80 odd dollars?

    And can anyone tell me what the large print quality is like, do they match the exposure/levels and all that jazz?

    Actually I thought that to buy one's own product for that price is very reasonable.

    I have added a few things there, mainly because I want to hang them myself, but couldn't be bothered going through the whole palaver of ordering a print, taking delivery, then going off and getting that framed. I don't expect to sell anything, although a mate has asked if he could get a copy of one of the shots, and I have directed him there.

    I got the idea from Xenedis who had a couple of his own things printed and was very pleased with the results.

    The missus is also quite impressed with the idea of getting some customised greeting cards made, and I have taken some shots in recent times of family, and will probably stick them up there with 0% margin so they can order prints or cards at their leisure without busting my balls (to coin a phrase) for prints / CDs / copies. Being of the belief that the print results are good, I'm also happy to exercise at least a degree of control over how the shots are presented - even though I'm still a relative newb (with quality of work to match) I'd rather not have my stuff "sullied" by being printed onto copy paper and stuck on fridges etc, at least where I have gone to some effort with the shots.

    I also see it is a pretty pain free method of generating christmas / birthday / mothers' day presents...

    If anyone has any wisdom on pricing I'd love to hear it (as a curiosity more than anything) despite not expecting to receive delivery of a new car based on print sales
