    Thats one of those live and learn deals bro. It depends on where you are at artistically. Are talking about just making the artwork or the whole enchilada?

    How much do you want/need to make? The number you give is 1.5x of that and negotiate from there.

    The way I quote projects is based on the following formula:

    x*y*1.5+z=quote
    where x= hourly rate
    y= estimated hours
    z= expenses (travelling, materials, printing etc..)

    so it all depends on how fats you work you are and what your time is worth.
    also make sure you have a breakdown of exactly what it is you are goign to deliver for that price tag (30 pages, 5 colors, 5 hrs photography, consulting etc..)

    good luck with the quote.
