10 Places to download free and paid mockups

If you're a surface pattern designer like me, you know that one of the most rewarding parts of our creative process is bringing our designs to life on actual products. Visualizing your patterns on real-world items is an exciting and vital step, and that's where mockups come into play.

Over the years, I've scoured the internet for mockup resources that align with my style and brand. The creative process can be demanding, and having a reliable collection of mockups at your disposal can be a game-changer.
