Use a mockup generator website.
A mockup generator website is an online service that uses stock imagery and AI software to automatically create a mockup from a third-party template. Typically, all the designer has to do is upload their design and the software takes care of all the technical considerations.
This technique is by far the cheapest and easiest solution, but it does come with some drawbacks. The resulting mockup will be unoriginal, and given that many designers will have used the same service, it is not uncommon to see the exact same mockup images cropping up ad nauseam all over portfolio sites. At the same time, this can be useful in a pinch, and unless the client is a purveyor of design mockups, they likely will not mind.
When selecting a service, you will want to consider the following: price, quality, and relevancy. In terms of price, many mockup generators are free to use, though you want to be wary of hidden inconveniences like watermarking or limited template selection. Otherwise, price is usually based around a subscription model, and most of the services I reviewed are in the $10 to $20 per month range.
Research mockups by other designers to make sure you don’t wind up with something common and generic.
Quality can depend on personal taste, but you should spend some time researching mockups that other designers and competitors use to get a feel for what is clever and what is common. You can also use services like Trustpilot to find user reviews to tell you outside of promotional materials how well a service works and how the actual results are like.
Finally, some of these sites specialize in certain types of mockups, and you will need to choose one that will be relevant to your projects, especially if you are purchasing a subscription. For example, Artboard Studio and Mockup Mark specialize in print and apparel mockups. Services like App Mock Up and Mockuuups Studio specialize in digital design mockups. Meanwhile, Smart mockups, renderforest, and Placeit offer general mockup templates for both print and digital.
