Question - Business Card Commission

I just got a request to do artwork for what amounts to business cards on FA.

The person seems like they're just going to be using the cards as advertisement for THEMSELVES as a furry-- not for any specific product or service, just something fun to hand out.

They want it in the style of some Swedish paper bill currency, as they are Swedish-- except instead of the figurehead, having their fursona. It seems like a fun request that I can definitely handle.

Here's where my question lies: since these technically are business cards they will be reproducing, should I factor that into my estimate for them? ie, should I be charging for the rights to reproduce, basically? Or should I just leave it at the cost of the art? I'm in some dire straits in that I could really use the money, but I also feel like I should be compensated fairly.

Thoughts, opinions? I'll be happy to answer any questions.

Probably want to make sure people at the cons they visit have their contact info. Some will just toss it, others will get in touch.

I've met people at meets and wished I'd gotten their contact info because of possible business deals we discussed, just wanting to get to know them better. It'd be handy to grab have a card like that- especially if they are one of those reaaaaallly extrovert furs and will make twenty new friends every con.

I imagine they aren't standing there giving them out down by the liquor store or anything, just furry events.

And even if they were just randomly handing them out, well, more income for the furry artists out there, yay!
