    I am inaly getting ready to do some sales of my work but I wasn'tsurewhatIshouldbechargeing. I am thinking about selling matted prints, and matted and ramed work, but I didn't know how much was too much or how much was not enough. How do some o you guys determine price?

    Add up all your actual costs for material; paper, ink, matte, framing etc. Then double or triple that.

    See what others are selling similar work for. Decide if you will be selling locally or online too. Be sure to consider all of your expenses, including the time it takes to assemble each picture, postage and packing materials, etc., then do what Big Mike said. Start with your prices a little low, then raise them as you start to make sales.

    Have Fun,
    Jeff
