I'm sure that they will be selling them for $20 or less, though I can't assume. But what I can assume is that the client needs to profit off their sales.

Agreed.. I forgot to add in the "Doubtful anyone is going to pay that much for 60 at a time..the bulk rule applies". I'd say charging $500 for 60 or so DVDs isn't asking too much tho, given the coloring dvd labels, the cases, etc.. .if it's done that nicely.

I wouldn't pay it. I'd just pay you for one and go to the bulk duplication place myself if you charge too much.

Lol...our clients aren't supposed to know that! Truthfully, the only thing that matters is who owns the copyright. Charge standard rate, or charge extra for full rights to the footage. I own the rights to everything I have shot...but if they want to pay the premium, that's cool. My job is to provide a good product. If the client is happy I'm happy. But no cheapskates allowed!!! Did someone say written contract?

Which is virtually unenforceable in wedding/event video due to the unclean hands doctrine.

The OP also needs to keep in mind the original cost of the production. It would be very difficult to expect a client to pay $1200 for DVDs if the original project was only $250. If you shot the event "on the cheap", the client will expect the same for the duplication.
