As the average Printful user will likely know, the mockup generator is one of the tools that considerably speeds up the process of launching new products on your store. Not only does it place your images on top of product photos, ready to be used online, bit it also does a whole bunch of other things that you possibly didn’t know about.
3 little-known features of the mockup generator
1. Create printfiles
Even though it’s called the mockup generator, it is also able to generate print files for you. Say, for example, you have a logo that you want to put on a t-shirt. Upload the design to the mockup generator, size it and position it, and then generate the print file. Now you’ll have a printful-compatible, guideline-compatible print file that’s ready to be submitted for orders.
After positioning the logo where I wanted it, I clicked “proceed to generator”. There I was able to download the correct sized and proportioned printfile that I could submit to receive a t-shirt with the logo position exactly where I had set it.
This works for both DTG and sublimation designs, and it’s the most foolproof way to make sure that the printing process goes as smoothy as possible. Usually the process is slowed down only when there are issues with the graphics and when they don’t meet the printing guidelines.
2. Select multiple colors at once
You can click on several colors to get your design placed on all the colors you want to offer so that you don’t have to go through the process one-by-one.
3. Publish directly to your store
If you’re using a Shopify, Woocommerce or Storenvy store, you can create a design in the mockp generator and push it directly into your store. That means no image downloading, no syncing. It even comes with pre-written product descriptions.
To try it out you go to Stores-> Add, where you’ll be prompted to choose the product you want to create and then move to the generator where you can choose your sizes, colors and upload your printfile.
You’ll be able to modify the title of the product and the description, but we’ve added our own that includes all of the important specifications your customers might want to know. It’s up to you to add personality.
