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.

I have to agree with he others here, they aren't making a profit from it , You should probably just leave it at the cost of the art, however you should set some ground rules with the commissioner on what, why and how they can distribute them. I also believe you should put your url as credited artist on the commission and tell them they should not remove that when handing.
I'm sorry to here that your going though hard times i truly am but you might just lose the commissioner if you charge more.
