Candle mockup templates on Smart Mockups

Smart Mockups also offers paid subscribers the ability to turn their own images into mockups so if you have plenty of high quality candle photos this could be a great option for you.

#3 Printify

Candle products on Printify

If you’re using Printify for your print-on-demand business then it makes sense to use their inbuilt mockup generator to create some quality mockups for the different products in your store.

They currently offer 5 different candle products that you can add to your store, and you get a slightly different selection of mockups for each product.

To use the mockup generator all you need to do is select one of their products, add your design to it, view a preview of your design, and click the download mockup button in the preview area.

Although the mockups that Printify offer are decent, they are somewhat limited. So, if you’re looking for a more varied range you should check out a tool like Placeit and use their mockups in conjunction with the ones from Printify.
