Though I love the bigger book, I voted $5 because it's easier to get a five-spot from a customer than having them break a $10 or $20 at your table. That's just my thought-process if you are planning on selling hard copies at the Conventions. My whole rationale goes out the window if you are selling exclusively online , 'cause when someone spends on line they are usually more interested in best quantity/price. Good luck!!
Yes. All of this, pretty much. It is all true and on my mind.
Selling online and selling at a show are completely different. I am able to sell a lot more at shows than online, so my target is shows.
Perhaps for online preorders, I will provide an additional 10 page pdf of sketches that didn't make it into the printed book or something. That way I can still have the 5$ book while providing additional content for online purchases.
If I were doing mine like yours, I'd be charging more. With that nice touch of hand sewing and all. I thought about that, actually. I love the sketchbooks I have off you. But it will be all I can handle to just put the book together and send it off to a printer and let them take care of it. x__x
I assume when you say 'pages' you mean 'facings' so 36 pages would be 18 physical pieces of paper. which sounds pretty good for a sketchbook. I would be more curious about the dimensions than the page count
That is indeed the meaning. Listed here are the number of facings. c:
The dimensions are still kind of up in the air for me. 9__9 Either regular comic size (6.5x11 or whatever that was) or 6x9 digest size. I'd really like to go for the larger size, but I'd also like to minimize the cost. Both sizes are bigger than xerox comic size. XD And both would be full bleed and on infinitely nicer paper (70lb gloss) than xerox paper. So in my mind, either option is still nicer than the standard.
