General question

What are mockups?
Mockups are a great showcase for any type of brand or design. They are pre-made image templates that make it easy to insert your own content. Add your logo to letterhead, app design to display, message to sign or outside bus advertisement. Free Mockup has a large number of clear mockups as well as actual photos. Make sure all the mockups you’re looking for are here to suit your needs!

License

Can I use the free model for personal and commercial projects?
We ensure that each item added to the collection is clearly described by its author as free for personal and commercial use. However, sometimes the creator can change the license without notifying FreeMockup – so double check the license on the final download page before using that mockup in your projects. Please respect the wishes of the creator!
Do I have to pay to use mockups?
It depends on the creator’s decision. Most of them don’t insist on paying usage fees, some require attribution or a link back to the original source. Please check the last site where you downloaded the item for any info on that.
