Pssst... check out our Geofilter maker ๐Ÿคซ

When would I use a Snapchat Geofilter?

You can use on-demand geofilters for just about anything! They can be used for weddings, birthdays, baby showers, bachelor / bachelorette parties, holidays, etc. Or for more unique events like wishing your friend luck on a test at school or asking your crush out on a date. Our 30'000+ customers typically use us to make custom designs, and choose from our large element library and font choices. We want you to find unique ways to surprise people with our filters! It feels just as good to give a surprise as it does to get one :)

How do I use my Geofilter?

Use your filter by swiping right after taking a photo or video on Snapchat during the time you set the filter to be active.

How much does a Geofilter cost?

We currently have two options to choose between when purchasing your Geofilter:

๐Ÿ‘ป Just the Geofilter design: $9.99. Once you have customized and downloaded your design, we will direct you to Snapchat where you can enter your event details (location, time, etc). Snapchat will charge you a small additional activation fee to upload which starts at $5.00 for ~6 hours, and goes up from there.

๐ŸŽ‰ Automatic Submission: Select your event details (location, time, etc.) directly from our website: $4.99. This option lets you upload your Geofilter to Snapchat directly from our website. Snapchat's activation fee is calculated based on the duration of your event, and size of the location. The activation fee is paid together with the Geofilter design when checking out. We will keep you updated on your Geofilter's status.

Important: If you choose option 1 (self-submission) and you are using a mobile device right now, the design will be sent to your email. You need to login to your email on a computer, download the design, and then follow the instructions on how to upload from there! All prices are in USD.

How do I submit my Geofilter to Snapchat?

If you decided to download your filter (rather than using our automated submission service), you can head over to Snapchat to submit your filter. The filters start around $5-20. Usually, that allows you to run your filter for about 6 hours covering 30'000 square feet, but prices vary based on location. Especially in dense urban areas, it can be much more. Once submitted, you should hear back from Snapchat within 24 hours about the status of your filter. Once approved, sit back, relax and enjoy your filter!

My Geofilter was rejected by Snapchat

Not to worry, Snapchat can be picky... but we can help! First check the reason why it was rejected - Snapchat will include the reason in the rejection email. Usually itโ€™s because the filter contains one of the restrictions listed in these submission guidelines.

Another common reason for rejections is that you have accidently submitted your filter as a โ€˜community filterโ€™. Community filters are permanent filters meant for cities and landmarks. Your On-demand filter (temporary filter for a party or event) needs to be submitted here.

If you still need help or to be refunded then contact us at happiness@pepperfilters.com and make sure to forward the rejection email from Snapchat so we can better understand the issue.

Can I use hashtags in my filter?

No. I know, I wish I could too. Snapchat doesn't allow that unfortunately. Read their guidelines for other restrictions: Geofilter Guidelines

What if my filter doesnโ€™t get approved?

All of our filters have been pre-tested and approved by Snapchat. We've launched over 30'000 filters for our customers. If for some reason your customized filter gets rejected, we will help you re-submit or simply refund your purchase! No worries :)

How do I edit the text in the filter?

Edit text by double clicking the editable text fields. If you double click and the text box doesnโ€™t open then that text is locked.

How do I add my own text?

How do I delete text from my design?

How do I add my own elements or a logo?

How do I change the size and position of an element?

To change the size of an element โ€“ click on the element inside the canvas. Then grab a Corner and drag to select the size you want. To change the position, click and drag the element until you find the perfect spot for it!
