It's Not About Prints!

Many Pinterest enthusiasts are convinced that their activity isn't cutting into the artists' lucrative print business, therefore no artist is losing revenue from the copyright infringement.

Dearest Pinterest enthusiasts,

Hardly any of us making a living from our art or craft has ever made a penny from framable prints. Only a few photographers do, most do not.

Prints isn't how we put food on our tables. We understand that it's difficult for you to grasp the multitude of ways we squeeze boxes of Kraft Dinner and Ramen noodles from our work. It's a hussle, we have to be creative in art, and in business.

Copyright infringement hurts us.

Enjoy pinning your own work, pictures with a "PIN IT" button, and images from Creative Commons.

The Artists.
