Edit Snapchat Filters with Templett

Whether it’s a wedding Snapchat Geofilter, bridal shower, birthday, bachelorette party, you name it, you can now edit it right in Templett!

Templett is already the best way to create and edit invitation templates and now it’s also the best way to design Snapchat filters. Allow me to take you through the process with some screenshots.

First, we’ll purchase this wedding Snapchat Geofilter on Etsy from Printable Moment (a Templett seller).

After purchasing, we’ll get an email with a link to access our geofilter template. Now we can edit it in the Templett designer. Let’s change the name and details.

Edit geofilter in Templett

After we’ve made our edits, we’ll just save the template in case we need to come back to it later and then we’ll download the PNG so we can upload it to Snapchat and set up our geofilter.

Now we’re all ready to upload our PNG to Snapchat’s Geofilter website. We have to choose ON-DEMAND because for a wedding or personal event like this a community geofilter will not get approved.

From this point on it’s pretty straight forward so I’ll save you the time. You’ll upload your PNG, set the geographic area for the filter, and set the time and date that you want it to be available. We’ve found that if any customers get hung up somewhere, it’s because they chose community filter instead of On-Demand filter. Your filter will not get approved as a community filter.

That’s it! Now all our family and friends can use our special geofilter at our wedding reception!

    • Hi Mohd, you should have been emailed a link to access the geofilter in Templett. Did you see that email and click the link to access the geofilter?

        Hi Travis, who sends the email the seller or Templett? I just bought my PDF yesterday and emailed my seller but no response. Please help.

    Hi, I bought my template design June 27 and downloaded it, but I never got an email with a link to access the geofilter in Templett besides the example of each step. How can I edit my template that I purchased?

    • Hi Shannon, you’ll want to contact the seller that you purchased it from on Etsy and they can send you your access link. It sounds like you might have had an old email in Etsy and that’s why you didn’t receive the access link.

    Snapchat states the file is too large. How do I compress it?

    • It’s already compressed when you download it from Templett. You can further compress it by running it through http://tinypng.com but I’m not sure how much more it can be compressed. The seller may need to redesign it. I checked your account. You’ll need to delete that background image that the seller put in there. Unfortunately the seller did not do that correctly.

    Such a great stuff!!! I really impress with your article and you made the site interesting one. The way of sharing this article was too good and now i use snap chat geo filters with templates. Thank you so much for sharing best post.

    Travis, I am a shop owner on Etsy and I have a client that just purchased a geofilter about the Derby and she is stating that Snapchat told her it was too large. I didn’t use large images, so I’m not sure why this is coming up. Can you take a look at the listing? Thanks in advance. Let me know if you need the listing number my email is: hannahhdez@yahoo.com

    • Snapchat has a max file size limit of 300kb. You’ll want to check this after designing a filter to be sure it’s under that. You can check it by downloading the PNG and then the process is different depending on the operating system you are using but usually you can just right click on the file and select properties and it will tell you the file size. On a Mac, it’s right click > Get Info.

    Hi, I am trying to set up the snapchat geofilter, however, it is telling me the file doesn’t have a transparent background. I am sure it does because I didn’t add anything apart from what the filter came with off Etsy. Help!

    • I know theres a Snapchat bug in Safari that causes this. Are you using Safari?

      • Kasandra Salazar

        I am! Would you recommend using chrome?

    Hi 😉
    I run 2 Etsy stores, and I’m interested on running products with Templett in both of them.
    Would I need to buy two subscriptions from you to do that, or can I have both of them under one subscription?
    Thanks

    Hi, Travis!
    Please explain why this is happening.
    When I project a geofilter I use a standard gradient that is available in elements. But after the filter is saved, this gradient turns to the side. Why is this happening? It seems to me that this is an error in this element, and I hope that it can be corrected.
    In order for you to understand the problem, I attach a screenshot.
    Thanks! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f4c86169155b95c65ec4e7648173c2ca7d644127d2ff098a7714c2e0285e5730.png
