What is a fair amount for an independant label to pay artists?

I'm in the process of starting up a small-run vinyl-only label that caters to the collectors on the fringe of musical tastes.
The label is interested in making enough money to continue putting out releases, having enough revenue to take chances on deserving unknown artists and of course fairly compensating the artists. Fair compensation (or *any* compensation) is actually rare in the small-run sphere.
