If you're only going to be there one day and this is your first time, I'd say make enough to pay off your badge and table at the very least. If you need to make more prints, there's a Staples right across the down the street from the con.

Hope that helps.

Unless you know for absolutely CERTAIN that your prints will sell well, I wouldn't make more than five of each. Smaller items like bookmarks and postcards might move better, simply because they're smaller and cheaper and easier to collect. A potential customer might not be enamored with a picture enough to buy a print, but be more willing to buy, say, a notecard featuring the same image. I know I've sold enough bookmarks and cards when the print (even at cheap pricing) was just a bit out of someone's price range.
