I’ve had a number of people ask me how to create or add the Pinterest hover to their site. Here is the much requested information as well as some pre-made hover images from me to you.

I can also make you a personalized image for your hover to better match your site’s theme by color, font, shape, pattern or transparency. Pricing is $10 and you can contact me at cdonnelly@geekowl.com.

Right click and save as for any image you want to use below. Do not direct link. Thank you.
