What do I charge?

My good friend is opening a cafe on a shoestring budget. I'm helping her with styling the place AND collateral (business cards, menus, etc.) I was willing to do it in exchange for free foodstuffs (it's a sandwich shop, yum!) but she is insisting on paying me, and I'm not sure what to do. I'd like to ask for a (small?) lump sum, rather than an hourly amount - but I'm not sure how much to ask for.
This is in addition to my full-time job, so I won't be spending all that many hours working for her on this project. I will be using my own 13 x 19 printer and inks to save her printing costs. I didn't find any relevant threads, but I'd appreciate links if y'all find them. I'm in Atlanta, if it matters.
Should I just ask her what she thinks is fair? It seems like she wants me to suggest an amount. Please hope me!
