Question on fair fee for commercial license

Postby Teknowizard » Mon Feb 11, 2008 12:33 am

I have been contacted by a non-profit org in DC wanting to license 5 of my artworks as the background image for advertisement posters (24x32 inches), with their products over top. I have only been able to find photographers listing actual fee rates but it seems the average for this type commercial use is $150.00 per image. Is this a fair fee for art as well?

Hi Randall,
Congrats buddy. So they only want to purchase the license, not the rights to the image, correct? $150 is very good price, taken the originality and rarity of the image. It's not like they want an image of a flower.

all the best,
Joe

Thanks Joe!

I sent them the quote a little while ago so it'll be a little while before I hear back. I went ahead and figured in a discount for their non-profit status as well so I am hoping they will accept it. I will let you know the outcome.

I was just looking at your gallery, and I have to say I love the saphire phoniex, and the one with jupiter. the one of jupiter has really inspired me to do the huge piece that I dream about. I think I am going to try to make the space when I'm vacation and start this spring. I hope everything goes well for you and the fair and thanks for posting sometimes I need a good kick even from those who don't know they are doing it. ^.^

Oh and do some more space, I too am a HUGE astronomy fan and love the work your doing. :D

You're welcome Saphyre. I will post my newest ones later or in the morning in the just showing when I get a chance. Finishing my homework now on how to right the license up, so I'll be ready if the offer is acceptable to them.
