New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Although this is a topic that people who really know about will rarely address in public (hmmm, what topic isn't? :-) I'd like to ask for people's experiences, so we can build a "knowledge base" so the speak.
What are good pricing schemes for commercial licenses and custom work? By the former I mean like pricing for site licenses, etc. And by the latter I mean pricing for custom/exclusive fonts.
Let me break the ice with two things from my end:
1) One of my non-Latin commissions has involved pulling a then-recently-released and single-digit-sold Armenian font from the retail market and transferring exclusive rights (for 3 years) to a small literary publication: $1600. Two weights with mechanical obliques.
2) I recently sold an Armenian retail font set (four weights, no italics) to the local Church Diocese for use on any computer in their main headquarters (in Burbank). Normally costing $250, I charged them $400.
