A Piece of Art Print Pricing…

First off, I find that it’s important for convention artists to hear what potential buyers think of pricing for prints, so to know whether or not their price planning will be more or less profitable at it’s current standing with the crowd demographic at cons, and how to alter it to the artist’s liking to perhaps encourage more sales to be possible by easier pricing, depending on each particular conventions sort of attendance. For example if you are at a smaller University based convention, price accordingly. If you are at a 10,000 attendee convention of family ranged ages, price accordingly. It’s about playing the crowds to your success politely.

But! Just because someone states a light opinion on pricing of Art Prints in regards to their personal finance, doesn’t entail the right for an artist or another viewer of the booth to make a rude remark about them getting a job or to tell them they’re too cheap or wrong or otherwise step over their opinion with their own so unkindly. I always keep in mind that not everyone is capable of working and sometimes there are younger viewers at conventions or online that can’t work due to being underage therefore are likely reliant on an adult and their choice of funds for spending. Those factors are things they should not be held accountable for and not be a damper to your view on your own sales while being an convention artist. If they admire your work and decline purchase for whatever reason maintain politeness because they’ve shown interest for your creations and that should be respected. And you never know, some that don’t have money one day may come the next and spend $50 in one visit another time, but they won’t do that if you treat them unfairly. Although if they deal with those issues of lack of funds towards spending rudely, then sure sit them down for a talking to about how to respectfully discuss pricing so you can adjust or maintain accordingly, or ask them to leave the booth and not obstruct your business doing.

Not only that, but in person convention artists almost always over mark their items and prints in order to have profit, but the margin of profit varies which ties the point of vanity of high or low. Unless you utilize a different system of pricing, in which case ignore these notions to your liking. Sometimes you have the high-horsers that mark their prints for much much more and ridiculously so than the base price it costs to produce a print copy that if they sell one print they’ve broken even for most print costs, sometimes there’s the artist that averages what they see all other attending artists pricing their works at to compete accordingly; sometimes you have the more modest artists that price their works to make profit per print but not greedily or un-affordably so for casual customers.

In short to the less informative and more rant based portion of my ramble: too many folks need a sense of perspective to be rendered more sensibly these days.

Slowly adding my art as online products available via society6 + search ‘colormymemory’.
