How to get Snapchat Filters

Snapchat filters will automatically appear after you've taken a snap depending on your location. After you've recorded a video snap or taken a photo, simply swipe left or right to cycle through the various geofilters or custom filters.

If you're not taking seeing any filters when swiping, make sure that you have location services turned on in your phone settings, and that you're allowing Snapchat to access your location.

How long does it take to get a custom Snapchat FilteR?

It depends on the intricacy of your design request. For designs on the simpler side, we can usually create your custom Snapchat filter in 1 or 2 days.

Custom Snapchat filters that require a significant of graphic design work will usually take 2 - 4 days.

Filters for major events such as weddings generally require a lot of detailed design customization. We want to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your custom Snapchat filter so we would recommend you contact us at least a couple of weeks in advance.

Please keep in mind that it may take Snapchat up to 48 hours to approve your filter after we submit it. So if your birthday party is on a Saturday, for example, we recommend that the filter be finished and approved by you by Thursday.

Bottom Line: the sooner you contact us, the better.

Do you accept expedited orders?

Yes we generally accept expedited or rushed orders for quick turn around times on custom Snapchat filters. A rush-order fee will be added to the final price of your order. The fee depends on the difficulty of the filter and the turnaround time. 

To make sure we can accommodate your expedited custom Snapchat filter please contact us before submitting an order.
