    So I am new to photography and just built my website.

    Well I have my first sale and don't know what to do. The photos are 3000x2000pix. She wants 11. It was my first time taking photos and the pictures suck

    Questions:
    How should I go about printing them - Do it myself *more money less quality
    Let her go get them printed on her own - *less money higher quality

    How much should I charge for the photo.


    **what the photos are like.

    P.S go easy on me I already know I am a noob.

    event photo's like that I usually see 5x7's for like 7 bucks, you're not going to be able to charge the 20+ like you do for weddings and portraits.

    I wouldn't let her print them. I'd give her the price.. lets say 5 bucks a piece, then get them printed from MPIX.com.

    Thank you.

    She wants the photos ASAP.

    how long does MPIX take? And also I go to ASU anyone ever heard of colleges having open printers?? or cheaper prices for students?

    I know there is photography majors here, i assume they have some nice printers around that I can use for a fair price. Ever heard of this?


    P.S i am not looking to make money a lot of money off these. I would be happy with 20 bucks! but if i can charge 5 per photos, then I'll do it.

    MPIX usually takes about 3 days. I just ordered with them on saturday (2/16) and they shipped out yesterday.
