How to Make Bulletin Board Product Mockups

If you create classroom decor lines or products that go on display (like posters or classroom management tools), you’ve probably spent some time scratching your head over how to photograph them. First, you have to print, cut, and prep the resource, which can take hours. Then, display them in a realistic way (which is hard when you’re photographing at home). You can continue to photograph your products the hard way, or you can use product mockups to make it simple.

One of my favorite ways to display products is on mockup bulletin boards. These digital product mockups come in different designs and themes, but the best part is that they completely eliminate the need for printing, cutting, and arranging on the walls. I’ll walk you through how to make bulletin board product mockups so you can display your resources with ease.

How to Make Bulletin Board Product Mockups

#1 Select Your Product Mockup

To start, you’ll select your digital product mockup. If it’s a seasonal product, you can pick bulletin board mockups with seasonal themes. Or choose a mockup with your brand colors.

Not sure where to start? Take a look at the Boho Rainbow Mockups and Bright Ideas Mockups. These include digital product mockups for bulletin boards, flatlays, and more. Using mockup collections helps you maintain a cohesive image across your store and social media!

#2 Take Screenshots of Your Product

This is where you’ll be glad you’re using digital mockups! Instead of printing and prepping, all you need to do is capture images of your product. You can do this by screenshotting pages and elements of the product or saving the product pages as PNGs. 

A bonus tip: you don’t have to use a bulletin board for your products! You can simply type text on top of the mockup and use it as a cute social post or header in your blog. For example, pull a Halloween-themed mockup and type “Happy Spooky Season!” on top.

#3 Use Canva or PowerPoint

Next, you’ll piece everything together. Upload your product images and the digital product mockup to your preferred platform. Personally, I’m a Canva girlie, but you can also use PowerPoint. Then, start arranging the product images just like you would if you were displaying the product IRL.

#4 Add Realism

Now you can really get crafty. To make the image look realistic, include shadows, add text to look like bulletin board headings, and make sure the sizing looks accurate. Your bulletin board doesn’t need to be Pinterest-perfect. Actually, when the pages have a slight tilt to them, or the spacing isn’t exact, it looks more human-made (rather than produced digitally).

#5 Share Online

Once you’re happy with your product mockup, save it as a PNG and start sharing it online! You can use this digital product mockup in your TPT listing, on social media, inside blog posts, and more.
