we run printshop business and use airtable for collecting orders. we would like to allow client to build their own designs and create mockups for tshirt. I wonder if anyone has an Idea for some third party tool that can be integrated with airtable.

This is very interesting.
How do you currently allow customers to do this? Is this something you want to make public facing so that anyone can submit a design?

artboard.studio looks interesting, though I have never used it.

Look. artboard is cool.
but there are really a huge number on online mockup tools both free and paid.
the hard part is - integrating the into your form (iframe possibly) and even harder is how you collect the resulting file right into where you want it in air table.

What about a third party portal (Softr, MiniExtensions, Stacker, Glide, etc.) for capturing the customer’s image. And a Cloudinary integration to combine the customer’s image with a preset T-shirt image.

Exactly. We capture images by miniextensions, and we have tested a couple image combining solutions.
We got some decent results too. But it can’t be compared we the tool that allows client to actually see what he is doing.

I know of 3 image generation tools, all of which can be automated with scripting or with Make.
And there are probably dozens more to choose from, too:

Thank you Scott
You can add Placid.app to your list. It is wonderful too.
However, all these tools generate the mockup after the form is submitted. What I was looking for is tool that can allow you actually create mockup during form submission.
There are a lot of plugins for wordpress and stand alone tools like placeit.com, but nothing I could find for airtable integration.
That’s my quest

Thanks for the tip! Placid looks great!
And Make supports Placid too!
