Mockups are free for you to use in your personal and commercial projects. All I ask for is feedback or a comment below. Distributing the mockups or bundling them into products for resell is prohibited.


  1. Thanks Mark … yes it is clearly evident how much you love what you do. Your mockups are second to none. Keep ’em coming and thank you!

  2. I worked in the offset printing industry (36 years) creating typography, darkroom film processing (when film was film) and post-processing (cutting and folding large sheets of stock) — our overhead conveyor folder took 32″ x 32″ paper sheet and fold it down 16 times …

    I know what you mean about being excited about work — I was in the shop as early as 2:15 a.m. and sometimes weekends and even holidays …

    I am interested in learning how you create thin shadow lines mixed with larger book shadows ???

    Wishing you and yours all the best, I am

    • Hey Marvin,

      Thanks for the comment. Pretty cool hearing about that process. I get those urges on weekends and holidays too.

      I’ll email you about the shadows.


  3. This is the first time I am entering your website and the mock ups are really gorgeous.
    I thought they are for selling 100%… this is a really good work.
    Thanks you very much for sharing this.


    • Hi Leonard. Glad you like the mockup. Versions before CS6 have been known to work, such as CS4 and CS5. But right now I’m supporting CS6 and higher.

  4. Thanks for the response. The only version of CS6 I can find is something called Creative Cloud. Is that the same thing? Could you point me to a version of Photoshop I can buy? I love your mock-ups so much I think I have to upgrade.

  6. Mark,
    A big thanks! Downloaded a 5X8 stacked book mockup psd file and within half an hour had configured a crisp png file featuring my new book. An exceptional offer, and all free! Wow!

  7. Estou inciando no ramo… Descobrindo as maravilhas do Photoshop e testando agora este novo recurso… Muito bom achar grátis pra quem tá inciando no ramo…
    Parabens pela inciativa!

  8. A messy 5 x 8 paperback book stack template is great for using up any leftover books or magazines. You can use the template to decorate a shelf, table, or mantle with an attractive and unique pattern.

  9. In addition, a messy 5 x 8 paperback book stack template is also useful for storing documents and letters in a tidy manner. The template features two separate compartments, allowing you to store important papers in one place while hiding them from view in the other compartment.
