We had our Pheasants Forever banquet Satuday night and had a coupe prints which we had framed. What is the cost you typically incure and is there a good alternative to framing so you can make better money on them?
Prints are a tough sell. Many guys think $150 is the max. My suggestion is to get the cheaper frame and medium priced prints.
There is limited value in getting a high end print unless you have the clientele.
We pay around $125 for a nice frame but when you add the cost of the print it is hard to make money for the organizations. Just wondering what everyone else does. This year we did get people to sponsor some of the costs such as framing.
Buy frames when they are on sale at Michael's or other store. Find someone to cut mattes or cut your own.
I just finished a 24x36" print, double matted. Looking at $100 total for frame, mattes and photo.
Update: the photo I matted and framed went for $475 at a Keystone Elk Country Alliance (KECA) chapter banquet last night in the live auction. 3 weeks ago I had one go for $600 at the Ridgeway KECA banquet. Glad to be able to help a very worthwhile organization.
