The main if not only reason why people use mockups for print items such as this is to show what it would look like when it is actually printed and in it’s physical form. So keep that in mind when creating mockups for print design. The more realistic the mockup, the better feedback you’ll get. However, with that being said, people have created non realistic mockups before which have been successful, but they put in lots of detail and make sure it has a very polished look and feel.
You are right
I tried to make it more realistic and I got it accepted now, so I’m very happy and wish purchasers like it.
Thanks for your reply and feedback.
Can I use the mockups as a template for creating the actual stationary and business card to send to the printer? Or are these just used for portfolio and approval? Thanks
Mockups are only used to promote the real printing files in some good way, as you mentioned as for portfolio. It can’t be used to be sent to the printer as most of the mockups are made in RGB colors with resolution 72 dpi, and print items are made in CMYK colors with resolution 300 dbi.
It’s not unique, there are already a lot more better options and technically it doesn’t look realistic enough. I also think that the wood background is weirdly bent. That doesn’t happen in real world. I’m just guessing but I think they prefer real photo mockup these days. If you still want to do with 3D rendering, it has to be unique and the rendered image has to be realistic.
Thanks you .. I think you are right as most if not all the current mockups accepted if it is realistic
I created a business card mockup, uploaded it and got hard rejection. Kindly feedback me what is wrong or what should I do to get it approved.
