Pricing Resources

Here below an important guide that I've found on web about pricing a work.
Thanks to Laura Wood for her work and her beautiful works.
If you want, visit her site and enjoy it!



Main things to take in consideration when quoting:
-size of the job
-size of the client
-complexity of the job
-use of the artwork
-geographic regions it will be used
-amount of time it will be used
-deadline


Also, these are general prices based on my own experience and general industry standard.

However, please be aware every artwork should be priced on a job to job basis.
Prices are in Australian dollars.

Picture books

from $4000 to $5000 advance plus 3-5% royalties.

NOTE: Royalties should be calculated on the retail price (the price of the book on the shelves).

If calculated on Net receipts then it should be higher, about 12-15%
