How to Create a Book Mockup Yourself

There are 3 ways you can create a book mockup:

  1. Download a book mockup PSD file and use Photoshop to insert your book cover into the mockup PSD (Photoshop costs $10/month)
  2. Use a paid book mockup service like Placeit where you can drag and drop your book cover into the mockup (~$8 for one or $29/month for unlimited)
  3. Send the downloaded book mockup file and your book cover to someone on Fiverr, who will use their Photoshop to create it for you (~$5)

Update: A 4th option if you only need one book mockup that is free and does not require software is a section below, but it’s not covered in the video yet.
