I think I just made a profit on shipping my mother a present for mothers' day.

I did a 12x54" triptych of this San Francisco skyline panorama, and mounted it on black foamcore. This afternoon I took it to the UPS store for packing and shipping, and one of the guys working there was rather enamored of it. "Where did you get that? Where can I buy that?"

Long story short, he wants to buy a couple of sets. Now I just have to figure out what to charge.

The set is three 12x18 prints. Having them printed costs me around ten bucks and maybe 15 minutes of my time. If I mount them, I'm looking at another five to ten bucks for materials, and maybe half an hour of my time per set. How much should I charge?
