Mock ups are great for showcasing your designs to potential clients or to get feedback from other designers and users. Mock ups are prototype or sketches that represent actual design. For designers of product packaging, using mock ups will help their clients visualize the actual look and feel of a design on their merchandise. For example, a client will appreciate a wine label design more if it is being presented on an actual bottle rather than just a standard flat graphic. In this post, we put together 32 of the best free PSD mockups and actions for creating product packaging presentations. The first 20 entries are PSD files with smart layers while the last 12 are Photoshop actions. We hope you find these freebies useful for your future design project.
All works are free personal or commercial usage, but please read license files before using. If you like this article, please help others find them by sharing via social media. Enjoy!
