Today we’re customizing your Pinterest board covers to match your branding and give your profile a clean and organized look. Having branded board covers makes such a huge difference. Your profile will look so much more appealing.

Step 3: Design your Pinterest board cover

On the left side of your screen are different options like layouts, elements, text, and backgrounds. You even can upload your own pictures. Experiment with the design until you find something you like and that fits your branding.

Keep in mind that you create these covers to make your profile look more clear and organized. So keep your design simple.
