Creating Pinterest board covers aren’t as hard as you might think. I didn’t know how to do it either when I started blogging. I actually taught myself. I could not find a good tutorial. I found a tutorial that said to use custom dimensions in Canva. I used the dimensions suggested. The board cover I made didn’t look right. The letters were off center and got cut off.
I realized that I had to figure it out myself. I didn’t want to pay someone to make them for me. I didn’t want to sign up to an email list to get a tutorial. I figured out how to do it one day in Canva. Once I figured it out my board covers came out nice.
It’s really simple to do. I am going to show you a simple hack to create Pinterest board covers. That way you can do it yourself. No hiring or sign-ups required.
must use Instagram post-size-dimensions. This is the secret to creating board covers. I discovered that Instagram post-size-dimensions work the best for Pinterest board covers.
The reason being is that Pinterest cover sizes are a lot smaller than a normal pin. So if you use the same dimensions you would for a regular pin it won’t work. Anything bigger than an Instagram post size will not work.
Make sure to save, and download your board cover. I always save mine as PNG because the image quality is better. If you save it as JPEG it will come out blurry.
Once you have filled out all the info and selected the Pinterest board this cover is for click save. Now it should appear in the board you selected as a pin.
