    all depends

    how long does it take tou to shoot it? proccess it?
    what output do they want?
    how big?
    what are they doing it for?
    what types of rights do you hold to it if any?
    what's your actual cost for doing it?

    Most places aren't going to want to pay much. Typically your profit will come from volume and having a quick in-and-out shooting method that minimizes time spent per item setting up and shooting. There are places that specialize this and can easily undercut you in rates due to their efficiency and specialization at this particular thing.
