    It depends. Are they ink jet prints, Cibachromes, hand printed B&W?

    Cost of time, materials, originality all matters.

    I do hand printed B&W, 11x14 minimum. It might take me all day to get on print exactly like I want it. Added in the cost for mounting, I wouldn't think of pricing it less than $100.

    Welcome to the forum

    Charge as much as you can get. If you end up selling many of them, very easily...your prices are too low. If you have trouble selling them, maybe your prices are too low. RE: The law of diminishing returns.

    There is no right answer and you haven't really given us a lot of information.
