Creating and Sharing a Pinterest Secret Pin Board

It is now possible to use StairArtist to create a portfolio of staircase layouts for sharing and interacting with your customer.

StairArtist makes this possible with the new social network button for sharing on Pinterest:  

You will need to open an account at Pinterest to create staircase layout portfolios to share with your customers.  Opening an account at Pinterest is fast, easy, and free.  To do so, go to

Portfolios of staircase layouts you create as secret pin boards are visible only by you and the person with whom you share it.  This might be useful if you wish to quote your customer as part of the share, or provide additional information you don't want others to see.

Secret pin boards may be shared only with someone who has a Pinterest account.  To create a pin board that can be shared with someone that does not have a Pinterest account, see the instructions here.
