I created the above 8×10 from 20 of my favorite photos from my June 2009 daily iPhone photos. I really just wanted to order a print for myself but then I had an idea. I thought I’d run it by you guys.
What if I offered a subscription service where at the middle of every month you received a shiny new 8×10 print like the one above of 20 of my favorite shots from the previous month?
I’d limit it to 20 subscriptions and they would be $12 per month for a six month subscription (basically $72 up front). That would include shipping, tax, and anything else fun I could throw in there at some point. The only reason I’m asking before just outright doing it is to see if anyone is really interested. I like them, but they are my pictures so I’m not exactly objective.
At $12 a month per print I make a solid $5 each. Times 20, that’s $100 a month profit. That’s not exactly worth it when you figure in all the time it will take to produce/package/ship/manage, however, the idea that 20 people would want prints of my random iPhone photos in their house makes me happy. So, $12 per print is about as low as I can go and still justify it. Each print would be produced by our professional lab and be numbered just like the one above.
So I leave it to you. Would anyone be interested in something like that? If you say no, you really won’t hurt my feelings (I don’t even think Becca would pay for it), but I would like to know either way.
Just post a comment with a yeah or nay. And a yes isn’t a commitment, it just lets me know you might be interested if I ever did it.
