I also sell prints through SmugMug.  I started out doing my own printing.
 All you do is put a note under a category like Fine Art Prints telling
those interested to contact you, like you do now from your site.  I did sell
a few that way back when I still had a darkroom.  Now I leave the printing
up to SmugMug and have been very satisfied with their printing.  You have a
choice of two printing companies that they use.  I've only sold a few fine
art prints that way, though.  Most of those sales are event photos and
people only want 4x7 or 8x10 print.  You can set your own prices and SmugMug
sends you everything over their base price which is ridiculously low.  The
good thing about using a site like SmugMug or PhotoShelter is that their SEO
is supposed to be very good and your keywords will come up high in a Google
