    Thank you very much ladies, I am very happy with this one. Some of the detail has been lost in the electronic version as it was only taken off a phone - I'll be getting a professional shot taken and have prints made of it. I've already got 4 people confirmed for prints

    Prints arrived today!! My lovely printer gave me a free poster size print too, I'm tossing up between selling it or using it for advertising at dressage competitions.
    Very very happy with the quality of them, the only difference between the prints and the original was that a little bit of the brightness of the background was lost. Otherwise, nearly identical. I have sold a number of them through facebook, and have just had my first Ebay sale

    That is fantastic ! That one is my all time favorite.
    What KIND of print is it? Glicee? And , about what does it cost you do them, and how big are they? Is it matte finish or does it have a sheen?
    If you'd rather pm me, that's cool.

    I found quality printing (not laser printing) was so expensive that I couldn't make any real profit on it.

    Thanks Tiny!
    Yep Giclee prints, surprisingly not too pricey either. I hunted around, found some really expensive, others better priced but horrible quality. As it works out, the best option is a local printer/photographer. He did a wonderful job of them and didn't charge the earth.
    I paid AU$30.00 for him to create the print image, which he gave me copies of on a CD.
    Then AU$30.00 per print, for 12x18" prints with a very low sheen finish. So not photo paper type finish, but not matt either. I am very happy with the result of them as it sets off the velour backing very nicely which is not easy to do. He also gave me a poster sized print just to see what it looked like enlarged.
    I've sold more than enough to make a decent profit on them, and have also had a number of commission requests, some for Black Caviar originals, and some private pets as well.
    I hope to do a few more portraits that will sell as prints :) Keep an eye on this space! I've got a lot of photo's lined up, in between commissions!!!

    Well, if you can get prints to sell, and in larger quantities, you can make some money. So wish you were not a world away so I could handle them and watch you work, and ask questions, and get in your way, and give an unsolicited opinon , and . . . .
