Imagine a place where you could keep your concepts, ideas, and pictures of signs where you wouldn’t lose them. A place where the collection would be organized and you could share it with others. There is a place and it’s called Pinterest.
Wikipedia defines Pinterest as a pinboard style photosharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other pinboards for images, “re-pin” images to their own pinboards, or “like” photos.
Basically it is a social networking site like facebook where you create different “boards” of interest such as, decorating, recipes, travel, fashion, outdoors, holidays, etc. When you see an image of something that “interests” you, you can save it or “pin it” to one of your boards. For example, create a board called “kitchen” for ideas on redecorating your kitchen. Years ago, we would cut out pictures from magazines so we wouldn’t forget the idea. Now when you see a picture you like for redecorating your kitchen, you pin it to your board. You never lose it! Yes, I’m a big fan of Pinterest.
In an article from socialmedia today, the rapid growth of Pinterest was one of the big social media stories of 2012, and by all accounts, the platform is continuing to see strong growth in the first half of 2013. What was originally a platform used by women is now expanding across wider demographics, and some businesses are even using the network in rather creative ways.
Connecting Signs has recently added Pinterest to our website. We have boards such as: Vehicle wraps/Graphics, Graphic Design, Vintage Signs, Modern Signs, Wall Graphics, Floor Graphics, Outdoor Signs, Indoor Signs, Banners for all Occasions, etc. The different boards are collections of signs and designs that we think are very creative, different, and popular. Check out our website, click the Pinterest icon (see below). We think you will see a sign or design idea that is exactly what you have been dreaming about. GET NOTICED!
