Would anybody buy posters of my paintings?

by
I've been thinking about doing some nice hires paintings with clean (nonsexual) characters in them. Looking around at the print on demand services out there. Deviantart and Cafepress seem like the easiest and most popular atm. Here's some prices I found just browsing around, what do you guys think?

DeviantArt:
Art Prints:
12x18 -$20
20x30 -$50
24x36 -$75
30x45 -$110

Canvas:
12x18 -$30
20x30 -$74
24x36 -$110
30x45 -$160

CafePress:
13x16 -$9
19x24 -$14
25x32 -$20
32x40 -$27
38x48 -$36

As you can see, the price difference is huge, but maybe you get what you pay for?  Another idea I've had is to do a series of posters that are meant to be put side by side to form a larger image. Anywho, let me know what you guys think or what you would like to see. Keep in mind that most places prohibit copyrighted characters, so it HAS to be original stuff ('owned' by you or me ,not Disney, Warner Bros, etc).

Printed hard copies. With DeviantArt you can actually have it mounted for display, but that's like +$100 extra.

theoretically I'd love to, but since I don't have too much money I'd have to think about it carefully ^^'

may I suggest www.rabbitvalley.com ... http://www.rabbitvalley.com/department_2379_0_0.html to be exact ... its nice to be able to actually call up and TALK to the guys that run the company, and they are 2 of the nicest guys you'll ever meet :)

Hmmm, looks really nice and versatile. The biggest downside though is that I have to order my own prints and ship them myself. I'm not sure if it's worth the hassle. But another upside (i think) is that maybe I could sell adult oriented posters aslo. I'll have to ask them about that.

I'm quite sure that, depending on what's happening (funny? smart? cool?) on those images, they could be interesting as posters ... wouldn't be the first time.

It's really interesting Looq... And I'm sure these place surely made and offer quality printing... and Deviant offer canvas... this is a really interesting option because of the originality, true it has a big price difference but nevertheless... and this mean that you're able to offer these by using their ''services', and they do the shipping and handling... now this is a really good service for the artists... really good thing *thumb up*... Héhé I would say to you to keep Deviant and CafePress... it's seems their both professionnal in their own way... and it's good to be able to offer a choice to your customers like we say...

Nice idea, Looq! I hope a lot of people get behind it.

I'd have to save up some money, but I'd love to have a poster from you. ^.^
