Can I use the mockups for print as well?

It depends on two things: Please make sure that the mockups come with the right license. For a good printing result please consult with your print service if the resolution is sufficient (300 dpi is recommended).

How come that this “free” mockup needs to be paid for when I visit the linked page?

Sometimes specific mockups become very successful on the web. That’s when some designers or agencies decide to go premium with the item. Since they don’t inform Mockup World about the change, the mockup will still show up in the collection.

Can I use the free mockups for private and commercial projects?

We make sure that each item added to the collection is explicitly described by its author as freely usable in private and commercial contexts. However, sometimes the creators may change the license – so please double-check before using the mockup in your projects.

Why don’t you feature 2D or completely vectorized mockups?

Mockup World is specialized in photo-realistic resources; so mostly mockups that are based on real photos. They transport a natural image and put your content right into a specific context.

Do I have to add an attribution for the source?

This depends on the creator’s decision. Most of them don’t insist on getting credits.
