    I've created a High resolution T-shirt mockup for Photoshop. Unlike other mockups you aren't limited to colors or size restrictions, you can display your art on a tee that actually looks printed and well done.

    It's a high quality PSD file containing:

    • American Apparel Tee layout.
    • Multicolor shirt's available in all printing colors.
    • Shadow & Highlight layers so your art actually looks printed.
    • 300DPI at 7x5 Inches.



    This file is available here: http://tinypay.me/~7c6eMUQ
    Most, if not all other mockups range from $30~$500USD. This file is created with intentions of helping artists display their work at a more professional level, for a fraction of the price; or to help companies with proof issues regarding clients, helping them visualize a better finished product.

    If you're a cheapskate and want to try before you buy, you can pay with a tweet too for a sample psd.

    all you did was cutout a high resolution of a shirt and add some blending options to a layer

    i absolutely cannot believe you're asking people to pay for this

    that is honestly fucking disgraceful

    What the fuck are you asking people to pay money for? An image of a T-shirt with shadows layers?

    What the hell?!

    And why don't you show an example of how it looks? It's bad enough to ask people to cough up money for this, but to even request free commercial to even get an example is really bad.

    It is indeed.

    Got this account I've never used and paid with a tweet and just deleted the tweet afterwards.

    And what do you mean it doesn't look good? Can't you see the wrinkles? Everyone has massive amounts of wrinkles on their shirts when wearing them! And they are SUPER CLEAR!

    You guys are completely missing the point of this. ANY other mockup you find on the internet (for free) is very small, not to mention 72dpi generally unrealistic. I took time to create this with a shadows layer, highlight layer and texture detail. I did research to match every color that american apparel has available to print and based the shape off a real shirt I took a picture of.

    Last time I check it wasn't wrong to ask for a little incentive for some work, especially work that's intended to help people, not anywhere in this whole thread did I ever say it was free, and any other mockup you'd find on the internet starts at $30.

    Also, the free mockup looks terrible because it's a small, free mockup. It's intended to show the level of detail put into it, such as the shadows + highlights. It's not intended to display your art at awesome detail, that's what the full one is for.

    Here is an example:

    You know what that's kind of neat.
    I often see a bunch of shit being sold including these kind of mock-ups.
    I think templates like these should be free in general uploaded on some archive on the net or something.

    But as long as you're making it really cheap compared to those other idiots selling it for 30$ then you're doing something good. Don't listen to these assholes, they've obviously never needed something like this and thus can't be thankful for your cheaper alternative.

    Edited:

    You're asking people to pay for a template what are you fucking high?
    Yes he is. But it's REALLY CHEAP.
    Others are asking much more for it.

    Like I said it pisses me off we need to pay for stuff like this at all, but at least he's making it cheaper.

    BTW if you get a lot of sales you should add different models. Like hoodies and v-necks and so on.
    If you can, try to add pictures of shirts that look like someone is wearing them.
    And I think a macro for Photoshop would be lovely: a macro that just bends the image you paste in the layer for the art for the shirt. So it looks more real.

    He can do that, but can't be surprised to be flamed for advertising it here... The account is from '05, he should have a good understanding of the community, and that they aren't going to spend money for a picture of a shirt, no matter how many minutes you spent on it in photoshop.

    Bought a copy for myself, To all of you saying "blah blah I could do this in just a few minutes", well paying $3, supporting forum talent, helping out a friend and saving some of my own time is well worth $3 to me. This reminded me I have a line of Zombie shirts I want to get designed and printed and I'd only ever print on American Apparel, in fact I only wear AA printed T's so this is spot on.

    Thanks for the time saver!

    It took me a while to make it actually. Each layer has it's own artwork mask and color mask too, among everything else. If you guys want free tee mockups just google it.

    But you'll get exactly what you (didn't) pay for, a 500px 72dpi 1-2 color mockup from hot topic.

    Here is an example:
    Or you could google "T-Shirt" with the image resolution set to 2+MP and get a high-res shirt and just slap over the art and set it to overlay and get the same effect.



    I also don't see how your hi-res example looks better, because it still looks like shit. And if it doesn't look good as small then it won't look good as big.

    If there is anytime an image looks better than the original, then it's when it's smaller.



    Nobody is saying it's wrong to charge money for this. We are however saying we think it's stupid. Quite the difference even if what we say is pretty much the same.

    If I was in need of a T-shirt template for commercial work I'd just take a picture of myself or some co-workers or people I know with a white shirt.

    If I needed a different colour I'd just cut it out.

    If I ever desperately needed to cut down on the work time on anything I could to maximize profit I would already be good enough to afford buying the more pricey mockups.

    The fact that you think it's as simple as applying an overlay effect (or even multiply or screen) to your art and a T-shirt shows me your knowledge of print and graphic art.

    Do you realize how much image quality you will lose using those filters? And how fake of a result that looks like? Not to mention on a white and black shirt?

    The free mockup is resized very small, the original size is 5 inches by 7, at 300dpi. Are you really that daft?

    You won't lose any image quality. You will lose image information when it comes to correct display of colours.

    If I desperately needed to keep it intact 100% I would do what you did. Cut out the shirt, use the channels to extract the highlights and shadows and put them in a new layer.

    Which I did already, for you. Hence why I'm posting here in the first place. 90% of people have trouble with things like that, not to mention using channels and keeping it good looking?

    I thought about doing it actually.

    Taking a trip to my sister in Sweden tomorrow and will be gone until Sunday.

    But maybe then I'll give it a shot. Taking a photo myself and all that jazz.

    pardon my ignorance, but when will you need a 300dpi 7x5 mockup? i assumed the purpose of the mockup was just to see how the design will look when printed, as a rough idea... not sure why you'd need to go through so much effort just to get that idea. but then again, i am totally ignorant to the world of design and printing

    The first one applies to what I said earlier, you'd have severe quality loss.
    The second one you really could, but I made the exact printing colors AA has available currently.
    The third one I agree with you, but that doesn't apply to everyone.

    pardon my ignorance, but when will you need a 300dpi 7x5 mockup? i assumed the purpose of the mockup was just to see how the design will look when printed, as a rough idea... not sure why you'd need to go through so much effort just to get that idea. but then again, i am totally ignorant to the world of design and printing
    You really don't, generally anything that's not made for print is only needed at 72dpi but I made it 300dpi native just because I like the option of going to 72, where as if I was just at 72, I couldn't go up to 300 without quality loss.
