#1 Why use wall art mockups?
If you want to sell more of your artwork online, you can make your art stand out with mockups. It’s surprisingly easy, so let’s learn how…
Whether you’re showing off your artwork to clients or looking to sell more of your artwork through your online store, visualizing how your artwork looks on a wall with mockups can help you sell more.
It allows people to get a good sense of how your artwork will look in their own home, and this can be much more impactful in getting them to make the purchase.
The good news is that creating wall art mockups is incredibly easy to do with Placeit and a few similar sites.
How can Placeit help?
Tools like Placeit let you find quality images to showcase your art without having to pay a photographer to take quality images for you or to do all that yourself.
All you have to do is choose one of their wall art mockup templates, upload your art or design, and download your image. It couldn’t be simpler.
You can easily find different scenes to choose from to fit the style you’re looking for and you can also find landscape or portrait wall art placements to fit your artwork.
Using a site like Placeit also means you don’t have to learn to use complicated software like Photoshop to create your own mockups, which can be a challenge and also time-consuming.
#2 Create images to preview your art on a wall
Using Placeit to find wall art scene mockups is incredibly easy. You can have a whole range of quality mockup images made in no time. Here’s how:
Step 1 – Choose a template:
Placeit has a huge library of hundreds of wall art mockups for you to browse so you’re bound to find some images that have the look you’re going for. You simply need to find a template you like and select it:
You can also easily preview how your art will look on other products too including apparel, phone cases, pillows, and much more. Placeit has a huge range of mockup categories:
Step 2 – Customize the template:
Now that you’ve chosen your mockup image you just need to make a couple of customizations.
You can upload your artwork (i.e. the design or image you want to see in the wall art frame) and you change the frame color on some of the templates.
Additionally, with some templates, you can upload an extra design (via the ‘upload your logo’ button), add custom text to the image, and also add graphics from Placeit’s library.
As an example, we uploaded our artwork to this template:
Step 3 – Download your image:
All that’s left to do is download your image. Here you have a few options too. You can:
- Buy the single mockup image for $7.95
- Get a Placeit subscription for $14.95 per month or $89.69 per year and get unlimited downloads of the wall art mockups on Placeit (and all the other templates they have!)
If you need more than one image, it’s a no brainer. You can get an unlimited subscription and download as many as you need.
There are no lock-in contracts either so if you have all the templates you need you can pause or cancel your subscription.
Bonus Tip 1 – Create and download multiple mockup images in seconds:
If you want to see your artwork on lots of wall art mockups at the same time (and be able to download them instantly) then you’re in luck. You can do this on Placeit.
To get this feature you will need to be a paid subscriber.
Here’s how it works. Go to this page on Placeit:
You’ll then see that you have the option to choose the product color of all the mockup images on the page, and upload your artwork or design to appear on all the mockups:
Once you upload your image and change the color you will get the option to download all the images directly from the templates page, rather than having to go into each template individually and download them one by one (what a time saver!)
