    I'm matting about 25 pics to be sold in a local store and as this is my first time selling shots I'm wondering if it's typical for the photographer to sign them and where to sign them? Any advice?

    I sign my images on the printed surface itself.

    Most photographers that I have seen and myself included sign the mat.

    I would sign the back so that if they ever change mats your signature is still there. That way it doesn't distract from the image either.

    What type of local store are you selling them at if you don't mind me asking?

    No I don't mind at all. It's a store that sells only photographs. I don't know if I could easily categorize it but the store has prints in boxes around the store and other prints in frames hanging on the walls. The photographer decides the price and it's a 60 / 40 split with the store.

    Without messing around with resizing and linking the pics... here are some links.

    The first and fourth one would sell in my art gallery. Nice shots! :) And sign them on the back and on the mat.
