    Choose the Right Font - Pin covers that use san-serif fonts get more engagement because they are easier to read vs. serif fonts. StoriesEdit has a variety of san-serif fonts that you can choose from!


    Go Bold and Colorful - StoriesEdit has the perfect color palette to choose from for your Pin Cover. Pins that have multiple dominant colors are saved 3.25x more! Aim for pinks, reds, or yellows instead of dark colors like brown and gray to get the most engagement out of your Pins.

    Create a Hierarchy - Hierarchy is a design term that means making the most important words stand out more than others within a layout. Make sure you emphasize the words in which you want users to see. If you can effectively draw attention to keywords, your Pin will have great success.

    Make it Read-able and Mobile Friendly - Make sure your headline is readable and not too text-heavy. 85% of people that use Pinterest are on mobile, so it's good to keep that in mind when designing your Pins.
