Note: Story Pins are a work in progress and aren’t available to everyone yet. If you’re in the U.S., you can request access by filling out this form. Please be patient while we review your request. You’ll hear back from us in 5-7 days once your request has been processed.

If you have a Pinterest business account, you can use Story Pins to include multiple images, videos, lists and custom text in a single Pin. Like other Pins, Story Pins will stay on your boards once you’ve published them.

You can use Story Pins to:

  • Create a step-by-step guide, project or recipe

  • Share multiple short videos with additional descriptive text or text overlay

  • Customize the colors and fonts in your Pin

  • Improve your targeting with topic tagging

  • Curate a collection of products

  • Tell a story in a brand new way

Each Story Pin has a cover and title. Use a video cover to help capture people's attentions in their home feed.

Create a Story Pin

Edit Story Pins

After you’ve published a Story Pin, you can edit the public note, the board you published it to, topic tags, and details. You can also delete an existing page, add a new page, or reorder existing pages. You won’t be able to edit the content of an existing page.

You can also leave 1 Story Pin in draft on mobile and up to 50 drafts on desktop. You can come back later to your device to finish and publish it to a board.
