Why use a Pinterest Template?

A template is useful because it helps speed up the process of creating Pinterest graphics for your blog. Instead of creating each design from scratch you can use a template.

Each time you go to create a Pinterest pin you will pull out your Pinterest template and then just update the text and change out the photo.

From Canva you can easily download your image and then add it to Pinterest to start promoting your content.
