      I charge either $400 for an off the shelf paper or $550 if custom, but if that goes beyond reason. like they want eight million changes, after a point I will charge extra. It also depends on the budget and use though....this is a generic fee. If it's a major huge company with international distribution you may get up to $4000 per use. Make sure you make it clear that YOU retain the copyright. They can copyright their edition or whatever, but you hold a prior copyright to the artwork. So they cannot think that because they purchased usage and it's in their project that they can sell your design to someone else now. This has happened to me and it got very ugly. Make sure they are licensing not buying out your artwork, and it's a one time use. I thing the Graphic Artists Guild will have something you can copy in their guidelines book.

      Subject: [Marbling] copyright permission


      Hi all,
      I was wondering whether you could advise me on sth. A publishing house
      has asked me to give them permission to reprint five examples of my
      work in a 4th grade elementary Art coursebook. They said that they the
      print will be less than 2999. Does anyone know what a 'logical' fee
      would be? Not having done this before I don't know what to do. Any
      suggestions?
      Thanks,
      Evi P.
