How to Create Custom Highlight Covers

Your Instagram bio is the perfect place to create a strong social media brand for your business. Highlights are saved Stories on your profile, and they look best when they have branded highlight covers. Here’s how you can create your own:

Use Canva to create the images

Canva is one of my favorite tools to recommend to clients who aren’t graphic design savvy! You can easily make any social media graphic, banner, or post in just a few steps. When using Canva to make your highlight covers you want to create a new graphic that is 1080 by 1920 pixels.

Decide what style highlight cover’s you want

There are many different styles that you can choose from: icons, text, or photos. Simply add the elements from Canva or use Flaticon to search for custom icons.

Change the background colors

To make the highlight covers seem cohesive with your social media brand, you want to change the colors to your color palette.
