Reproduction rights

I have a question about something I am unfamiliar with. A web designer has contacted me. They have a client that is a very large law firm and is interested in using one of my painting imaged for a web site and related material. I have been asked for permission to the image, pricing and what copywright display requirements I may have. I guess my biggest question is pricing. Is there a standard quideline anyone uses.
Thanks, Brian

Re: Reproduction rights

Double the price of the painting is the norm for a one-time use, which will probably also need to allow for image use on business cards and literature from the firm. The image use will also need a small note of the artist's name below the image. (painting by john doe)

There is a detailed discussion on similar to this here http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=764201

Re: Reproduction rights

I recommend getting a copy of the Graphic Artist Guild's Handbook. Lots of information on pricing as well as the nuts and bolts of sales like these:
