Mockup Photographs in Print on Demand: Lissa Talks Print on Demand Episode 012

Today’s the day! We are talking all about mockups!

Welcome to my limited series on Print on Demand! In our twelfth (dang!!) episode, I talk about my experience as a photographer who shoots mockups and sells Print on Demand items. Here’s some topic we discuss!

Don’t Overthink Your Mockups

Simple Sells But Trends Do, Too

Using Mockups for a Cohesive Vibe

How I Use Mockups in My Print on Demand Business

It’s Okay To Use Different Mockups for Different Things

Real Items Matter

Understanding Item Colors in Mockups

Wanna know this episode in one quote? Awesome! I’ve got you!

Ask yourself: What kind of product images are you drawn to? Subdued, minimalist images? Flashy images? Images with a lot going on? There’s a lot of information that simple sells and, while simple does sell, personality sells, too. Which is more your vibe? Do you like bright colors? How do you want your customer to feel when they see your mockup images? What kind of mockup best reflects your design? All these things will contribute to the style of mock you want. The possibilities are really endless!!”

Literally forever obsessed with Printify. I use Printify for all of my print on demand printing and I’ll never stop singing their praises. They’re incredible!  For design work, I’m totally in love with Canva and also love finding extra artwork + fonts on Creative Fabrica and Creative Market.  For photography, I shoot with a Canon R6 and most of my mockup photographs are taken with the 35L or 50L. I do all of my editing in Adobe Lightroom and have since 2011! It’s my jam!
