Where to get high quality Mockups?
There are many occasions where you would like to see how a design that you’ve created looks on an actual product. If not to make sure that the t-shirt design you’ve created looks as awesome as you think, then another reason could be to create a realistic impression to share your design on social media for your audience or for your client. You really can’t go without the use of mock ups to give your customers a boost in imagination so that they can actually see how great your work looks in action.
There are several ways to get your hand on realistic representations of a product’s appearance. The most common ways are either to create them yourself using a mockup or use one of the mockup creators on the internet. Xquissive takes a look at a few solutions to help you on your way.
Do it yourself
If you are familiar with Photoshop then you can download free or paid mockups of almost any subject you can think of. Most of them are made in a way that it’s super-easy to replace the design in the mockup with your own design. Yes, that is without complicated tweaking or anything, but with incredible results! A few excellent resources with a wide selection of premium quality mockups are:
CreativeMarket offers a HUGE collection of over 28,000 mockups of almost any object and situation you can think of. Most of the offered mockups are of an excellent quality, because of their high product standards. With a price range between $2 to $10 you really can’t go wrong. Visit CreativeMarket now.
Designbundles is a bit smaller than CreativeMarket, but it still offers over 2,000 different premium quality mockups. Pricing starts at $1.50. Check out the collection of mockups at Designbundles now.
TheHungryJPEG is the smallest mockup provider of this list with almost 800 available mockups, but it’s also the cheapest one, starting as cheap as $1.00. Visit TheHungryJPEG and check out their collection.
