Would LOVE to find out where these numbers come from they are Fig Newton's
of someones imagination the suspect being DrLarry.
Your typical up and coming but unheard of yet photographers 8x10 or 11x14
fiber archival (of course) print goes for 2 or 3 hundred bucks. Black and
white more so than color but that depends on the color process. Matting and
framing not a big issue. Size is often not such a big issue as well unless
things go to an extreme.
