    I want to sell this shot in an 8x12, it will cost me to print it and ship it about $8.00. I know it is up to me but what would you charge for it?

    Why an 8x12? Is there a special reason you want an oddball size? At any rate, to answer your question, I generally charge between fifty cents and one dollar per square inch of print, depending on the usage.

    8 X 12 is the size of the shot if I did 8 x 10 I would have to crop about 20% off

    you could do 8x10 and have the printer just put the black lines on the top and bottom so it will still have the whole photo. thats what my printers do for 8x12's... makes it look like a wide screen movie clip

    $8.00??? Where are you printing??. You know Mpix charges $2.99 for an 8x12 I can't imagine shipping costing more than $1 or $2.

    Mpix shipping is $5.00 no matter what you order. I normally charge $55.00 for an 8x10 portraiture print
