Pillows, glorious pillows. What would we do without pillows to support our heads and necks and backs, or just to hug when we need comfort? And what a terrific canvas for designers and businesses to display their artwork and logos on.
If you're looking for a high-quality pillow mockup to display your own artwork, you're in luck. Today we feature 34 of the coolest pillow mockups from Placeit and show you how to use the Placeit Pillow Mockup Generator to upload your own fabulous designs.
How to Use a Pillow Mockup Generator
Before we share our favourite pillow mockups from Placeit, let me show you how the pillow mockup generator works.
1. Navigate to Placeit’s Pillow Mockup page.
Use this box at the top of the page to upload your design on one side and choose the colour of your pillow mockup on the other.
2. Select a Pillow Mockup You Like
Uploading your selected image will add it to the pillow mockup templates available at Placeit. Browse the templates and click on the one you like most. This will open the image in the pillow mockup generator.
3. Customise Your Pillow Mockup
Starting with the controls on the left of the pillow mockup generator, you can add text to your template if you like by using the Add Text button. Here, you can also change the font and the colour of the text to match your brand.
Under the Add Text button, you will the Upload Image button. Use this to change your design, make it bigger or smaller, or adjust it up or down as needed. In this example I added "40% off".
4. Move to the Controls on the Right
Using the controls on the right, you can change the background of your image or even add a graphic or logo.
Above the background colour selector, you will see the pillow colour control. Here you can change the background colour of your pillow if you so desire.
5. Download Your Pillow Mockup
When you’re happy with your pillow mockup, you can download it for a small fee.
