lunch box mockups

Hey creators, welcome to my thoroughly tested collection of the ultimate free and premium lunch box mockups.

Note: I decided to add three versions (online generators, PSD files & free mockups) because I worked with them all.

Plus, I added a few lunch bag mockups and even takeaway (for food delivery) solutions to make it as COMPLETE as POSSIBLE.

This post covers:

You now have everything to start immediately and create a lunchbox design presentation in a few clicks.

Yes, it’s that simple working with these mockups!


Best Lunch Box & Bag Mockup Generators

These are my FAV because of their quickness and simplicity. Each generator costs $7.95, but you can start for FREE.

You can also opt for a monthly ($14.95/month) or yearly ($89.69/year) subscription – save money with access to everything!

Note: Generators allow you to make mockups without Photoshop.

1. Takeaway coffee cup & food box mockup

You can expect to create the final version in just a few clicks since it’s a generator. You can also change the color of the box and the cup individually and insert any design you want.

2. Minimalist food bag mockup

This one is somewhat similar to the first one just that it has a lunch bag instead of a box. Also, the cup is smaller and comes with a customizable holder.

Use your imagination to apply it to so many purposes. And the outcome will never look like you used an actual mockup, which is THE BEST part.

It helped me while making packaging for a grocery store offering takeaway lunch meals.


How To Easily Create A Lunch Box Mockup

I want to share the easiest and simplest guide to creating a realistic lunch box presentation.

Here’s a secret: You don’t need Photoshop to make it happen!

And because I worked with Placeit on 100s of projects, I vouch for it and highly recommend you use it, too.

You can test all their mockups for free (but I recommend creating a free account first because it’ll smoothen your workflow).

5 Steps to create a lunch box mockup:

  • Step 1: The first thing is to visit Placeit and search for lunch boxes. Sadly, they don’t have a specific category for them, but their live search bar will help you find the right ones easily.
  • Step 2: Once you have the template that meets your project’s needs, open it.
  • Step 3: You’ll see various functions on the template’s page. I always start by uploading my design, either a new one from my device or pick from my uploads. You’ll notice a popup window open that allows you to crop and reposition your design.
  • Step 4: After you add the design, perform other customizations, like changing the color(s), editing the background, text, graphics, etc.
  • Step 5: Once you’re satisfied with your creation – download it!

Creating a life-like lunch box showcase couldn’t be more effortless.

However, even if you decide to work with a PSD file, the method is very straightforward after you import it into Photoshop.

Search for the smart object, slide in your design – and you just did the “hard” work.

You can also tweak and modify the mockup however you want (it gives even more creative freedom than a mockup generator).
