Hi ALL,

I got a request from UPS Italy to buy my photo of UPS with a high quality because they have to produce large picture to put it on the wall in their UPS Italy sites, in particulary at their UPS Gateways in Italy.
That person said in addition may be possible to have it on file my boss would show at UPS Gateways Receptions.
They want this photo size (70x100) !!

I have no idea for how much to charge them.

Any idea ? I appreciate all of you.

Thanks,
Sokol

I would ask them how many prints do they need and, after that, I would tell them that I prefer handling the printing process myself. By doing that you ensure a high quality display of your pictures and that no one but you has the original file.

Just my 2 cents!

that's a big responsibility for someone who doesn't do this on a regular basis. and if there is any mistake, he will have to eat that himself.

THese mega prints are done by specialty places and in most cases there's already agreements in place to do the printing.

Thanks for the replies.

I Think will do prints them self, so I don't know how many prints they will do and what they will do.
UPS wants just the file with high pixel resolution size 70x100 and the eventually costs.
So I don't know what will they do, what can they do with that photo for UPS Gateways Receptions?
That photo will be used commercial for UPS.

What else should I ask them?
What price do you think works for the file, with this size 70x100 high pixel resolution?

First of all, 70x100 inches or centimeters?

Secondly, you need to know how many prints will they make to set the price.

Sokol,

I would not ask less than 1,000 euros for something that visible. Anything less from a company of that size is not acceptable. Bargain a bit if you have to but do not sell your work for cheap. They would pay a lot more if they hired a photog to get the kind of images of their planes that you have here.

Send them the original file from your camera, no editing, and an agreement for them to use it only as specified without any transfer of copyright. The photo remains yours and you are simply giving UPS permission to use it for the purposes you agree to with them.

Do not attempt to print on your own as it would be difficult and expensive and you also do not know what type of print they want. You likely can't make 1-meter wide prints at home. And you'd spend hundreds of dollars shipping the prints from ANC to Italy in hard boxes. They are UPS, they have their own printing faciliities, believe me  Smile

Hope this helps. Congratulations on getting a potential sale to a big company!

Indeed!
 thumbsup 

I would also ask what image resolution do they expect.

I lost a sale to a big company couple years ago when they insisted on printing 20x30" and wanted it in 300dpi, nothing less. Did not come up until after we negotiated the price. Sad

Thanks for the replies.

I just got the e-mail back from UPS,

He said, We need the file because our vendor have to print the imagines on particular material to create the picture. In addition the 300dpi seems too low resolution for the dimension that we need, size 70x100 cm.

They want the file but I am confused when he said (the 300dpi seems too low resolution) !

300dpi is not low resolution for that size, don't forget it will be up on a wall. Most of the prints I do over A3 are at 300dpi and the quality is perfectly acceptable.

It seems, to me at least, that people don't know what resolution is and what does 300dpi means.

Example:

That would require either interpolating with a software like Genuine Fractals (better and very easy) or Photoshop (not bad, either, and still very easy) or shooting with a camera that produces 54 megapixel images (extremely expensive because you would need to shoot with a Phase One P65+ back which starts at U$D39,900).

Now, regarding this particular case (the one of the OP), the print will be 100 centimeters wide which is equivalent to 40 inches. At 300dpi resolution, the image would be 12,000 pixels wide, which is A LOT of interpolation. At such a print size, I would print at 150dpi which would mean a 6,000 pixel wide image.

I recently had a client here in my town that was wanting MASSIVE prints for their Presidents office. I had to learn a number of things along the way. One of them is what you just presented above. Glad it happened because both parties, me and the client are VERY happy with the results!

Yeah, we should really have an idea of how many prints they are making before quoting them a price on it.

He said I think that the copies should be two dimensions 70x100 cm.

That's not the size he asked - but how many copies they'll do in the print run. Depending on how many are in the print run, then the price can change.
