leaving watermarks

Photo notwithstanding this is not an april fools prank. 
{You gotta be able to smile about things though.}
We’ve realized we, a lil’ bit against our own will, – have to
start putting watermarks on top of the photos
Hannah shoots for us & that we share on this amazing
world wide web. And we thought we wanna
talk to you a little about it..  

It’s not forbidden to print photos & images that you’ve
found online, for private use, and it’s widely spread
today, with so many images floating around,
~ & on top of that; a trend to make your own mood boards
etc from photography & tear sheets from magazines.
It’s not forbidden & to some extent it’s truly a 
compliment that people want to grace their walls
with the work you produce. But.

Because yes, there is a but.
Love Warriors is a company. A company with
real people behind it. People that work hard with
a whole lotta’ love, sweat & tears, literally, – all put in 
with the mission to be long-lived, ~ &  to continually bring
you lovelies inspiration, happiness & beautiful things.

It becomes a problem when you share images 
you’ve downloaded online, you put them up on your walls
and specify Love Warriors or Hannah Lemholt Photography
as the source for the work, even shown in interior magazines.
That’s when the people who want to pay their way
start e-mailing us;
wondering where they can buy those prints 
in this & that size. And that’s when
our time starts being put into the wrong things,
instead of a whole lotta’ love.

There’s even two buts. 
Because after all of that love, sweat & tears
has been put into, in this case, photographs, ~ then
we spend weeks choosing paper and more weeks
in collaboration with our printers to get the
right profile for every photo.
We wanna bring you things with quality,
all the way, you know? Simple as that.

 

We also wanna thank you amazingly
lovely people who continually share the love
with images, tags, comments & links
on instagram and blogs. For sharing with
love, you forever have our hearts.  

Still & always;
with love,

the warriors
