How do I use the free Mockup Generator?
Our Mockup Generator is a free tool that lets you upload your design and preview a realistic mockup of the final printed product. You can use it as a part of your product creation process or as a stand-alone tool to explore new design ideas.
Follow the steps below to create your custom product with our free Printify Mockup Generator.
Step 1: Choose a product
Log into your Printify account, navigate to our catalog and choose the product you wish to customize. Click Start designing for your chosen Print Provider.
Step 2: Upload a design
Choose how you will add your design:
Upload a design from your computer, Dropbox account, or Google Drive
Add a custom text design using the Text Editor
Choose an image from the Shutterstock image library

For excellent print quality, make sure your image matches the recommended dimensions and resolution shown in the side panel. In case you have a low-resolution design that you want to use, we’ll automatically enhance the quality of the print file before sending the order to production so that it’s more suitable for printing.
Step 3: Adjust the size and placement
Once the design is up, adjust its size and placement. Use the side panel to select your preferred alignment.
Step 4: Choose the product colors
By default, your design will be applied to one color variant. Click on the Select to choose more color options for your product. All sizes of the selected colors will be automatically added to the product.
To learn more about what happens when a product variant goes out of stock, click here. However, if you’d like to make adjustments to the size options or check the pricing/stock availability, click on Product variants just above.
You can also create a single product with different designs.
Step 5: Preview the mockup
After you complete the design process, click Preview to see a mockup image of your design on the different color variants.Here you can also preview mockups in two different color modes - RGB (bright, vibrant) and CMYK (realistic, closer to the printed result).
During this step, you can also personalize your mockups by uploading a custom background image from your device. Currently, this feature is available for a limited number of products, however, our team is actively working on expanding this feature to include more products in the future.
In case you need to download the mockup either during this step or at a later time, you can do so in the mockup Preview mode. Simply open the mockup of any of your products in Preview mode and click on the Download mockup button.
Step 6: Save the product
Lastly, click Save product. To make your product available to customers, you’ll need to connect your eCommerce store to Printify.
