Make Your Custom Mugs Look Irresistible
It doesn’t matter if you’re a first time custom mug seller or you’ve been part of the industry ups and downs since the beginning, one thing never changes and that’s the constant and relentless competition. If you want to enter the game or stay in it, you need to have something that helps your mug designs stand out.
The simple fact is that no matter how good your coffee cup designs are, if the photos you use look like every other photo of a mug out there then there’s no way you’re going to build a brand or a reputation. The only way to stand out in a crowded market is to have your mugs look spectacular and professional with high resolution mug mockups and Placeit has those in spades. In just a few simple clicks, Placeit’s mug mockups will take your designs to the next level and beyond!
Same Designs, Double the Value
Once you have some experience under your belt, you can easily transfer the same designs you used for your mugs to other lucrative items like t-shirts. While on the surface the two items may appear to be completely different, the fact is that they both serve as excellent canvases for your designs.
With very little effort you can take the same designs you created for your mugs and use them to create some fantastic t-shirts. In addition, Placeit has you covered with amazing mug mockups and fantastic t-shirt mockups so once you learn how to use Placeit to make your promotional images for your custom mugs, you already know how to make t-shirt mockups since the process is exactly the same, talk about a smooth learning curve! This way you can quickly transition from custom mugs to custom t-shirts once you feel ready and you don’t have to learn how to use any additional software or tools.
Good for People Who Might Not Want a T-Shirt
Some people just don’t appreciate t-shirts with designs and would rather have the same designs on something else like a coffee mug. They might not feel comfortable wearing your designs but they still want to purchase something that has them and mugs serve that purpose. One unintended side effect of this is that a coffee cup is an item your customers are likely to use on a daily basis while a t-shirt isn’t. This means potentially more exposure for your designs! Put another way, coffee cups are far more versatile and have a wider appeal than most t-shirt designs.You customers might not be able to wear your funny cat designs to work but they can sure use a mug with the same design.
Mug Mockups for Every Niche
Mug mockups are effective for every niche. Mugs share the same great versatility that t-shirts possess. They’re great as blank canvases that are just ready for your designs to be printed on them. In other words, they can work for any niche imaginable. Below are some examples of wildly diverse niches and examples of how mug mockups help the mugs look visually attractive, ranging from math humor to cute cat pictures, coffee mugs are fantastic for any niche imaginable.
