Ways To Use Pincodes
Sharing is caring, right? So let’s spread the Pincode love!
You can share your Pincode anywhere your heart desires. Just remember, when displaying your Pincode, make sure the circular part is at least 1.5 inches in diameter for optimal scannability. If you’re printing it on a physical object, go for a flat surface to keep it legible and fabulous.
Oh, and one last thing: Remember to play by the rules and only use images for your Pincode that you have the rights to. Just like any other Pin you create on Pinterest, let’s keep things legal and legit.
