I hope it's okay to post this here.
Any help would be much appreciated - posting this on behalf of a friend who is doing a market research project and having trouble getting people to do his survey - not many people on the Street talk forum know what a print is, so I thought I would appeal to some artistic people.
I know it's an artistic community here but some of the questions such as size, price and the such would be relevant to all prints - so if your a buyer I would be greatful if you could fill it out. Because we're from New Zealand it would be great if you could inform us of the currency when posting any money details so we can convert it.

6. Aside from the cost and not liking it, what are some reasons why you would NOT purchase a print?
First off, I'd have to say that this sort of print probably would not appeal to an artist. Aerial photography tends to be more fact-finding or tourist than intentionally artistic--at least the kind I would always see in my frame shop.
The type of people that would bring those prints in would always want CHEAP and the subject matter to be some landmark that was exciting to them (Typically tourism spots, occationally "I work/live there!" spots). Going on that cheap theme, people love stuff that can hang immediately (like print on canvas), but if you go with frames go inexpensive and neutral. If you do regular prints and they're relatively small, try dressing them up a bit with a mat as that tends to justify larger cost to a consumer.
