Since Snapchat introduced On-Demand Geofilters in February 2016, Geofilters have been used by snapchatters from around the world for every special occasion, including birthdays, weddings and events.
To make Geofilters even more fun, Snapchat has announced snapchatters will be able to add Bitmoji to their customizable Geofilter creations, starting Friday, Nov. 18.
In order to create your own Geofilter, simply choose a theme (birthday, celebration, wedding) on the website. Then, select a design, customize your Bitmoji, add a message and colors. If you’re linked to your Snapchat account your Bitmoji will automatically appear.
If you and your friends have set up Bitmoji in Snapchat, you’ll be able to see a “friendmoji,” which will include the both of you. If you want to add a friendmoji, search for your friend via the drop-down menu. Once you’ve finished creating your Geofilter, simply hit ‘finish” to continue with your purchase.
Geofilters start at $5 USD and are based on the size and time period. You can use the company’s online tool to experiment with prices and locations. The on-demand geofilters can cover anywhere from 20,000 square feet to 5,000,000 square feet and can last for an hour or a month. The price depends on both of those factors.
The Snapchat team will then review your order to make sure it meets all design and technical standards. The company estimates the approval process takes about one business day.
