It wasn’t long ago when I still thought, “Who even uses stamp mockups these days?
Rubber stamps in general? Isn’t that too old-school?”
My web design friend, Jack, SOON proved me wrong.
He amazed me by showing me his specialization: custom rubber stamps. Agencies, businesses, corporations, freelancers – yes, many still use them!
Luckily, he was willing to sit down with me to review what’s available on the market.
We went through 50+ stamp mockups.
He was kind enough to share with me (and now, YOU) his FAVORITE.
Table of contents:

High. Quality. Ultra. Realistic. Presentation.

How To Create A Stamp Mockup?
You may think creating a life-like version of a custom stamp is hard – WELL, it’s not!
And you don’t even need any software to make it happen.
That’s why I’ll show you the quickest way to do it – using an online mockup generator.
And because I already tested it on 100s of projects, this step-by-step guide is all about using Placeit.
It’s my favorite!
5 Steps To Make A Stamp Mockup:
- Step 1: After clicking on this link, you will see all Placeit’s templates for creating a realistic stamp showcase. Pick any you like, or even better, choose one from the collection above. (Okay, they’re kinda the same 🙂 )
- Step 2: When you land on the mockup page, upload your design via the “insert image” button. You can use your laptop, tablet, or smartphone device – anything works.
- Step 3: A popup window will open with a live preview to adjust your design’s position and size. Click the “crop” button when done.
- Step 4: With your design on the mockup, perform any last customization tweaks you want. This could be changing the background, adding some text, or even a graphic or a logo – it’s up to you.
- Step 5: That’s all the “hard” work – DONE! Click “download” and start using and sharing your stamp mockup creation with the world.
Moreover, if you use a PSD template, the process is just as simple, but it all happens within Photoshop.
Open PS and import the mockup you like.
You’ll then see a smart object layer, which allows you to drag and drop your design – as simple as that.
And because all the PSDs I added have a great, layered structure, you’ll also find it effortless to modify the mockup further.
Change the colors and the background, adjust lights and shadows; well, you get the gist of it.
Save. Download. Done.
