Geofilter Studio is a design agency that specializes in Snapchat filters. Filters are all we do. Being the first and largest filter company in the world we have learned many tips and tricks. Our experience sets us apart from all of our competition. We have become a reputable producer of filters.

Every event for example: weddings, festivals, birthdays, nightclubs, sporting events, high school events, proms, fundraisers, corporate events, university events and many more.
Fully custom orders usually take 1-4 days however, we do offer a 24 hour rushed service. Template orders are processed in less than 24 hours. Please note, we recommend at least 6 business hours before an event begins to process an order.
We will do any necessary revisions to ensure your filter is approved for no additional fee.
A rush fee of $15 is applied on same day template orders and template orders placed after 3pm CDT for a following day event. A rush fee ranging from $30 - $50 is applied when a text and text & imagery custom order is placed within 48 business hours of the event starting. A rush fee of $50 - $200 is applied when a cartoon order is placed within 48 hours of an event. Pricing varies depending on the number of people in the cartoon. Please note that rush fees are subject to change during periods of high demand.
We work with every customer one-on-one to ensure complete satisfaction. We do allow minor revisions to every design at no additional fee. We recommend providing as much detail as possible when placing the order. You can even send us examples to help illustrate your desires. Our designers create the custom filter based off what you describe. Major revisions (ie. a whole new design) cost $10-$20 depending on the requested artwork.
If a designer has not started working on your filter you can cancel the order and receive a full refund. If a designer has completed the initial proof only a partial refund can be issued at the discretion of customer service, dependent on the situation.
Not quite! After placing an order you will receive an order confirmation email. If you do not receive this email, please send us a direct message at email@example.com. If everything looks alright we will process your order. We might have some questions before we begin. In this case, we ask for prompt responses so we can begin ASAP. Once we complete the design you will have to approve the proof, geographical location, date and time. Only once approved we will submit your filter to Snapchat. If it sounds complicated we assure you it’s a very simple process. We are alongside for the entire process and will ensure everything goes smoothly.
Your credit card information is required when placing an order. One of our customer service representatives will review and process your order. At this time the provided card will be charged the design fee (as well as the rushed fee if applicable). Any outstanding fees (ie. Snapchat fee) will be charged once the design is completed and submitted to Snapchat. You will be provided with an invoice breaking down all of the fees. If the card you provided cannot be processed we will contact you via email.
We charge the design fee upfront as a deposit to ensure the customer is serious about the order. This is to ensure that the designer’s hard work and time is not taken advantage of.
To activate your custom Geofilter on Snapchat, you must specify a location, date and duration of your event. Snapchat uses this information to calculate a “Geofence” fee. Most events have a fee between $8 and $20. Multi-day campaigns are possible, however, the price will increase accordingly. The cost depends on the size, duration and demand of your designated area.
The Geofence size needs to be a minimum of 20,000 square feet (approximately the size of a house & yard) to a maximum of 50 million square feet.
The Geofilter duration must run for a minimum of one hour to a maximum of six months and start/stop on the hour.
Snapchat has artificially increased the fee over certain areas, such as luxury hotels, arenas, stadiums, and theme parks. Please view some examples below. Notice the urban centre (downtown New York) has a higher fee than the rural area for the same square footage and run duration. After placing an order we will provide a Snapchat Activation fee quote. Having uploaded thousands of filters we have learned many tips and tricks to ensure everything runs smoothly.
1-4 Hours: approx. $9
24 Hours: approx. $20
1-4 Hours: approx. $20
24 Hours: approx. $35
1-4 Hours: approx. $12
24 Hours: approx. $30
The Snapchat Activation Fee is based on the timeframe and geographic area that the Geofilter will be active over. The Geofence size needs to be a minimum of 20,000 square feet (approximately the size of a house and a yard), and can increase to a maximum of 50 million square feet. The larger the area, or the longer the timeframe, the larger this Snapchat Activation Fee will become. Our Account Management team will personally handle the Snapchat submission and management process, which is built into this Snapchat Activation Fee.
One important note for businesses to consider regarding the Snapchat Activation Fee is that for extended timeframes, the Activation Fee is actually cheaper on a per day basis. Geofilters can be set up anywhere from 1 hour to 6 months, with businesses having the exclusive ability to have their Geofilter active for a full year. For this reason, businesses looking to utilize Geofilters as a long-term marketing tool should consider investing in a longer term Geofilter to capitalize on these savings while still experiencing increased marketing benefits.
Certain high-profile venues and areas have had this fee artificially inflated by Snapchat, such as luxury hotels, stadiums, and high density metropolitan areas. After placing an inquiry with us, we will quote you the Snapchat fee and provide an image outlining the “Geofence” of where your Geofilter will be active. The Snapchat fee will not be charged until you have approved your Geofilter design and are ready to have it go live.
