This is my GO-TO pasta packaging set of mockups that I HIGHLY recommend unless you’re looking for a more specific packaging (which you can find below).

I was able to create endless variations with the six layered PSDs – easily and quickly.

The available paper and plastic bags also have an option to add a window or keep it without.

And lastly, the 4700 x 5000px resolution (300dpi) guarantees the ultimate quality and smooth design showcase.

Nothing is stopping you from making the best of the best. GO.

2. Spaghetti box mockup

These spaghetti box PSD templates are my favorite from this list. The variation of views allows you to add your graphics to different sides of the box via the QUICK, smart object layer insertion.

100% zoom works great and every element is on a separate layer for 1-click editing.

You can also change the background with any color you want – even add an image (that’s what I did)!

3. Pasta window packaging mockup set

The extreme flexibility of this next bundle of pasta mockups allowed me to work on multiple projects without a sweat.

I was able to create custom packaging for clients’ fusilli, noodles and farfalle with ease, thanks to the five ready-to-go templates.

Also, the 6000 x 4000px dimension is RAD because it offers to crop the image to showcase particular details WITHOUT losing quality.

How To Create A Pasta Mockup?

The easiest way to create a pasta mockup is with Photoshop.

It only takes you a few quick steps that won’t require more than sixty seconds of your time. (Unless you decide to do some really serious customizations and tweaks to the template.)

5 Quick Steps To Make A Pasta Mockup:

  1. Step 1: Open Photoshop.
  2. Step 2: Import the PSD mockup you like. I recommend you pick any from the collection above because they work great.
  3. Step 3: Find the practical smart object layer. I made sure to include only the templates with an organized structure, where all layers are easy to find. Use the smart object to insert your design.
  4. Step 4: With your design in place, you now have the freedom to modify the default look however you want. There’s no right or wrong way – do it your way! (You can change colors, the background, the effects, add an overlay, etc.)
  5. Step 5: Save and download, and your work is done.

I usually start with a free mockup to test the waters and then move to a premium one.
