Launching a new product? Bring your ideas to life with these top product mockup templates...
You’ve got an amazing idea for a product. You’ve agonized over the functionality, the materials, the marketing, the branding, the celebrity endorsement – the so-bad-it’s-good pun slogan. Everything. But before you present your concept to your client or sign off with a manufacturer, you need to see how your product is going to look out there in the real world – and that’s where product mockup templates come in.
Product mockup templates let you create an ultra-realistic 3D projection of your product in a matter of seconds. Whether you’re designing a smartphone case, a hoodie, a flyer, perfume packaging, or a novelty mug, seeing your creation alive and kicking in its natural environment can give you and your colleagues the confidence to finalize that order with the manufacturer. It can also point you in the direction of crucial tweaks and optimizations before it’s too late. Either way, a mockup is an essential step on the journey a product takes from the drawing board to the marketplace.
All this talk of templates have you reaching for the beta-blockers? Have no fear. Endless tutorials for complex bits of kit like Adobe Photoshop are by no means necessary to get started with product mockups. We promise.
In fact, getting started with mockups could not be simpler thanks to our friends over at Placeit. With Placeit, creating a mockup of your product is as straightforward as uploading a photo to Instagram. No additional software is required, the magic happens right then and there in your browser.
There are only two steps to the Placeit process.
Best of all, product mockup templates let you bring your design to life without the need to commission an expensive, time-consuming physical prototype. This means there’s no need to get all your ducks in a row before you start prototyping. Getting a feel for your product in 3D need not be the penultimate step on the rocky road to a completed product, it should be part of the design process itself. You can use mockup templates to refine your concept, try out the newest trends for size, pinpoint design flaws, and avoid color clashes you might otherwise only notice when there are thirteen cardboard boxes of product in your living room.
