At what volume do you discount prints?

Morning peeps.  At what point/volume will you discount prints?  I have had this question brought to me many times in the past including most recently this weekend with a new wedding gig I landed.  The client wants prints of the wedding to send out to folks who attend the wedding and wanted me to discount the print cost based on volume.  

I don't have anything in writing or have taken steps towards doing this, however this is a big deal so pondering how to make this work.  Do you discount if a client buys a certain number of prints?  My profit margins on canvas and metal are fixed and it's not that high compared to what others are charging.  

I could use some help on this.  Thank you in advance.

What prints? All of the photos? How many different photos? How many sets? What size? In albums or just packaged sets? Will you be printing them or sending them out for printing? 

It's difficult to determine anything until more is known about the size of the project. If sending them out for printing, the print shop is going to want to know the size of the job before quoting it too. Way more information is needed before anyone can give you a reasonable reply.

Start with the wedding couple to find out what they are expecting and how many sets of photos need to be sent to guests. What does the couple want and expect to get?
