Free & Premium T-Shirt Vectors and Mockups for Designers (Episode 1)

by on Aug 04, 2016

The beauty of our day to day here at TeeHunter is to interact with designers. We do it as often as time allows and it’s a big joy when a new designer registers here to submit their t-shirts for extra exposure or to find inspiration in the interviews we have written in the past.

This guide is for the t-shirt designer who doesn’t want to compromise on their work. Sponsored by VectorStock.

There are a couple of requirements that designers must follow in order to assure a great design:

  • (Episode 1) High quality resources; such as vectors, elements, shapes and t-shirt mockups. In other word, everything that gets pulled into your Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
  • (Episode 2) A good hardware setup, enough RAMs to power up those large .AI files and still have a fluent mouse on the screen.
  • (Episode 3) Inspiration.
  • (Episode 4) Time management.

In our Episode 1, we’re going to tackle the first one, showing you some great resources for t-shirt vectors & mockups. Talking a bit about where to get them for free and where to get them premium.

Giveaway: In the same tradition at TeeHunter, we did arrange our friends at VectorStock to offer 50 credits x 5 designers (valued at $250). Winning is pretty straightforward, register at TeeHunter, submit a t-shirt that you like and use the hashtag “vectorstock”. We’ll randomly pick a winner every week and announce it here.

Top 9, High Quality, Free T-Shirt Mockups & Vectors

The web is full of freebies, we have collected only the t-shirt mockups and vectors that are worth your time. Start downloading the .psd’s.

1. T-Shirt Mockup from Graphic Burger
This is definitely our favorite one, high resolution, high quality, we have personally used it. The whole hipster wooden background, black & white versions, .PSD, it’s pretty much all you need to see how your t-shirt designs looks like. Unless you need a real model wearing it, and in that case, we have something up next.
