This MAY be my first gig, so I want to be prepared before it happens, because it will happen quickly. An art dealer who represents a local hotel may want to purchase 200 20x30 copies of one or more of my images to be placed in their redecorated rooms.

I have some "canned" releases, but I'm not completely sure how to protect myself. I also don't want to scare off the dealer. What are the major points I should address? Also, is there any etiquette concerning asking for a deposit before I go off running to a lab and print out the 200 copies, only to have the dealer/client change their minds?? A percentage?

Jerry, a legitimate dealer shouldn't object to a request for a deposit to cover out-of-pocket expenses on a sale of this size. If he balks, I'd have to ask why, since it's an outright sale. Just get everything in writing and don't put yourself in a big hole based on somebody's promises. Based on my own experience as a visual artist and a musician, I don't trust anyone until I see the cash.

Absolutly! get enough money in advance to at least pay for the prints! that art dealer will understand, is just logical.
