Default Pricing small booklet, short run

Good day all,

I am so happy to be a part of your forum. I have found a lot of very valuable information from the posts and comments. I need to ask if anyone can help me with a slight problem I am having with pricing.

I was just asked to put a souvenir booklet together for a group of professionals in my area. The actual booklet sounds simple but I am totally stuck on what I should charge them. I have recently started my DTPm business and the word is getting around fast.

My expertise is in photography and decided to do DTP as well. I love it.

Here are the specs for the booklet:

8x10 pages front and back
Black and white except cover
20 pages including cover and back sheet
200 booklet by 02/17/2008
Pictures will be scanned by the client
Binding will be with those plastic spiral binders found in local office supply store

Can you advise as to the price structure to print one of these and what you would consider a fair price to charge?

Also, would you consider printing these from home (I have the Canon 9000) or should I go with a printer.

Thanks in advance,
