I am just finishing up a project for a client that I am going to deliver on a DVD. The DVD is in a plastic DVD case with custom artwork I made for the front and back cover sleeve. The DVD is printed on my epson. The one copy of the DVD is included with the original fee, but I have a feeling that she is going to want more copies for other people involved with the project. It could be 10-20 DVDs.

These take time and money to burn, print, cut out sleeve photo and assemble. What is a fair price per DVD package? The client is a Realtor's charity that does home makeovers for deserving people.

Thanks
Paul

If you're doing it in a charitable mode, double your materials expenses and let it go at that.

Otherwise I've seen $25 as the going rate for a first DVD and $15 for duplicates.

Hi Paul
Are they saying this is what they need i.e. custom artwork, front and back - or is it just copies of the DVD they want ?

How about suggesting you create a special web page for them - where they can download the images from - and then they can forward that link onto others. This is what we do for many of our clients - and most love it - as it saves them time & money posting out copies or trying to email large files, etc.
It also means I can monitor their usage too Smile
