Wood Enamel Pin Mockup (PSD)
Go for an interesting wood and enamel look with this pin mockup. All you have to do is open the PSD file and place your design in the smart objects provided. The file is well set up to make editing easy. Give it a try!
Here's a chance to show your pin with its packaging too. You can edit the text, of course, to display your own brand or a slogan of your choice. If you're comfortable using Photoshop, you'll find it very easy to create a stunning mockup using this template.
Every detail of this metal badge mockup is so easy to customise. You can change the thickness and colour of the pins themselves, as well as the design of the backing cards. There's a help file to walk you through the whole process.
If you want a similar effect but with a more muted background, try this pin template PSD file. Your colourful pins will really stand out against the black and grey backing.
Make your pins look professional with this classy silver and gold enamel pin mockup. The clear plastic packaging looks so realistic, doesn't it? These two look as if you just bought them from the museum gift shop. Try adding your own pin designs to see how they'd look.
This gold enamel pin mockup is plain and simple, with three pins placed on a grey background. Just place your own designs in the smart objects, hit save, and you're done. Or if you want to customise it further, for example by changing the background colour and texture, you can do that too.
What's great about this metal badge mockup is the way it shows both the front and back of your pins. So you can show off your design, but also show how it attaches at the back. Adding your design takes just seconds.
Or here's a glossy pin mockup that puts your design front and centre, taking up a lot of space in the frame. It's not as natural-looking as some of the other pin metal mockups we've seen here, but it's a great choice for making the most of your design.
Simple Button Mockup (PSD)
If it's not important to show the back of the pin, then try this simple pin template PSD file. It's set up to make it easy to add your design and showcase it against this simple background, with just a subtle shadow to make it look realistic.
Round Pin Mockup (PSD)
It's not clear how this round badge is standing up on its own, but it does showcase your design nicely, so if realism isn't important, then choose this pin metal mockup and add your design! The pack comes with four mockups, so you can choose the one you like the most.
Here's a nice glossy pin mockup to make your designs look oh so enticing. Adding your designs is as easy as double-clicking on the smart object. All of the colours are easy to change too.
These clean badges could work well for a political campaign, couldn't they? Add your own designs to the pin rectangle button badge mockup, and see how stylish they look.
You get three different scenes in this mockup set, and you can choose whether you want your pin to lie flat on the ground or to appear to float. When you add your design, you'll be amazed to see it acquire a realistic metallic sheen. Try it out!
Pink Pin Metal Mockup (PSD)
If you need a glossy pin mockup with nothing to distract from your design, this is it. You get four pin template PSD files, each well organised so that it's easy to add your designs using smart objects and customise the colour, background, etc.
Small Metal Badge Mockup (PSD)
Here's another round badge mockup showing the design on the front and the pin on the back. This time, it's lying flat on the background and is smaller in the frame, which is good if you want to suggest that the pin itself will be on the small side.
Glossy Lapel Mockup (PSD, JPG)
If you have three different pin designs, or three different colour schemes of the same design as in this example, then choose this mockup to showcase them in style.
If the pink background shown here doesn't work with your design, don't worry—you can customise it, along with everything else, in Photoshop. The pin button mockup PSD template is well organised, and there's also a help file if you need more guidance.
Creating an effective pin design is one thing, but communicating it to your client is another. Using a glossy pin mockup like this one will make the task much easier. Download it and see how easy it is to create amazing results!
Can't decide whether you want your pin to lie flat on the surface or stand up at an angle? Get the best of both worlds with this pin metal mockup, which shows two pins in different positions.
Choose from the four different glossy pin mockups provided in this pack, and use the smart object feature to easily add your design in Photoshop CS4 or higher. There's a help file in case you get stuck.
Lapel Mockup (PSD)
If you want to show your pin being worn, try this realistic lapel mockup. You get four PSD files, and you can showcase multiple designs in the same mockup if you want.
Metal Badge Mockup (PSD)
The good thing about simple mockups like this, with just the badge shown on a plain, textured background, is that it naturally draws the viewer's attention to the most important thing: your awesome design.

Adding your design in Placeit is even easier than in the Photoshop mockup templates. All you have to do is click "Upload Image" and watch your design appear as if by magic. Click the image above to give it a try.
Here's an option using the square instead of round format. If that's suitable for your design, then this could be a great option.
Or try this template if an elongated rectangle is a better fit. It's simple and minimalist, and you can change the background if you want.
Instead of appearing on a plain background, this mockup showcases your square badge on a sleek wood surface, at an angle that matches the perspective.
This cool button mockup is similar to one we already saw in Photoshop format, but this one is so much easier to customise. Just upload your image and watch the magic happen.
With a minimalist backdrop like this, there's nothing to distract from your pin design. The subtle indications of shadow and surface are just enough to give it a three-dimensional feel.
A background with two shades of the same colour can make a simple, stylish design statement. See how your pins would look on this one—and if the colours don't quite work, it's easy to change them!
If you're happy with your pin looking small in the frame, this is a good, clean option. Upload your image to give it a try, and change the background details if you want.
Or here's a lapel mockup showing your badge being worn on a checked shirt. Your design will be large and highly visible.
Here's another variation on the square pin mockup shown earlier. The slight variations give you plenty of scope to choose exactly the right layout for you, so browse and experiment to see what works best.
This textured grey background is realistic, and plain enough to make your pin designs stand out beautifully. Showcase four different designs if you want, or upload the same design multiple times—the choice is yours.
Or try this similar option, with a slightly different pin layout and a plain background with no texture and a different colour.
If you just need to show one pin, then pick this mockup to give it maximum impact. Customise the background colour to complement your design.
Sometimes, multiple pins can showcase multiple designs, but in this case it's best to stick to a single design. Why? Because the two pins underneath are partially hidden, so it's best to use the same design as on the top pin, which is perfectly visible.
Here's another two-colour background, giving you a great chance to pick colours that bring the best out of your design. Changing them is easy using the colour picker in the Placeit mockup maker.
As the name suggests, this mockup features a portrait of a woman wearing a badge on her jumper. But you can also crop in closer to focus more clearly on the badge itself, as shown here.
Here's another simple, minimalist option for you, this time with a plain coloured background and the front and back of the pin placed side by side.
Choose this glossy pin mockup if you like the simplicity of the previous design but want a bit more of a 3D effect.
And finally, here's a glossy pin mockup on a plain, simple background. You can, of course, change the colour of the background to match your pin.
