Introducing – Customizable Backgrounds for Product Mockups

Introducing – Customizable Backgrounds for Product Mockups

The wait is over, dear merchants. Today, Printify is happy to announce the latest feature in our ever-evolving Mockup Generator that will help you unlock your financial freedom and be your own boss. Cue the trumpet sounds and firework emojis…

You can now customize the background for product mockups.

While this feature is currently only available for some of our product bestsellers (see a full list below), it will greatly improve and ease the creation of top-notch mockups for your product listings. And we’ll be rolling it out to more products soon.

What Does This Mean for You?

Original Backgrounds That Will Leave Competitors in the Dust

Create one-of-a-kind backgrounds to differentiate your product listings from a sea of similar mockups. This is your chance to sneak in a bit of extra branding and personality with beautiful backgrounds just for your store.

Unique Customization Without Extra Skills or Knowledge

Now, you don’t need to be a tech guru or skilled designer to create a drop-dead gorgeous personalized background. It’s just as easy as designing a product. Find an image you like and upload it to the mockup. That’s it. Simple, fast, and convenient.

Most Importantly – You Save Time, Money, and Resources

Forget tiresome downloading and replacing things manually with separate software – or spending money outsourcing unique mockups and templates from third-party sites. Now, you can customize backgrounds directly on Printify and sync your mockup with your sales channel.

How Does It Work?

This part is easy:

Step 1

Open any of the products listed below in Preview mode.

Preview mode

Step 2

Scroll down the list of mockups, and at the very bottom, you’ll see the beautiful Mockup background section.

Step 3

Now you have the option to Add image. Upload any background image you’ve found or created and add it to any mockup that has a white background. If you wish so, each mockup view can have a different background.

Step 4

Save the product and sync it with your sales channel to make your listings pop with one-of-a-kind backgrounds.


To avoid blurry backgrounds, the image resolution should be 2048 x 2048 pixels.

Background Ideas for Your Product Mockups

Here are some background ideas to get you started.


Background Ideas for Your Product Mockups - Themed

Adjust your background for seasonal events, special occasions, and product-related themes to make your designs pop. Whether it’s Christmas time, Valentine’s Day, or the 4th of July – you can bedazzle the background with hearts, flags, and symbols to make one-of-a-kind listings.


Background Ideas for Your Product Mockups - Branded

Just like a neck label on a shirt – a mockup background can serve as the ideal branding tool to help you promote your merch with your branded signature. Create custom backgrounds with your brand name and logo, or add things representing your store and company values.



If you don’t want to base your background on anything specific – but still want to stand out from the crowd – try abstract designs and patterns. Colors, lines, shapes, and more. Whatever catches the eye and mesmerizes buyers will do.


Background Ideas for Your Product Mockups - Neutral

In case you don’t like any of the ideas above, you can always play it safe with neutral backgrounds. Search for something with calm colors, patterns, or imagery that fits any season, special occasion, design, or product type.

      Hi there,
      Perhaps all-over-print might be a good solution for you: 😉

    Will you be adding a drop shadow option? That would really make the mockups pop!
