Now that you know how to change the board covers, you may now ask yourself how you can easily create custom board covers if you do not have any graphic experience or any free time to design.

Do not worry, because I am here to give you some easy tips and strategies on how to custom design your board easily and quickly and where to do it for free! 

Pinterest board cover size 

The recommended Pinterest cover size is a 1:1 ratio (square) so you can use 1000 pixels by 1000 pixels. 

Use Canva

Canva is a great place for those who do not have any experience in graphic designing since the website is pretty straightforward and easy to navigate.

Aside from this, Canva has a lot of beautiful free fonts, images, graphics, and themes that you can easily choose from! With this, you will not need to spend time thinking about what font to use, etc. 

Create a consistent design

Lastly, if you want your Pinterest profile or Pinterest board collection to look organized and cohesive, then make new board cover photos that are similar to each other. If you have a branding color, then that’s better. 

You’ll need to just use that same color for your background and maybe you can just change the text color overlays per board. 

Experiment with the design but make sure that the cover photos still match your branding and aesthetic.
