1. I am a designer offering a service, I do not work for Snapchat.
2. Anyone can access the on-demand filter tool at www.snapchat.com/on-demand . If you have your design prepared already, its pretty straightforward to submit it yourself. Maybe you don’t need me.

3. Snapchat is constantly upgrading this feature. They recently added an online filter design tool which might serve you just fine for a simple birthday or event. Again it’s right on snapchat.com/on-demand (Here is a step by step tutorial: https://youtu.be/4g7mjtsvFjY)
4. There is a difference between “on demand” filters and “community” filters. On Demand filters are for events and you can pay to reserve time and space. If you are looking for a permanent filter for your town or highschool, those are different. I do not make community filters, as they are impossible to guarantee approval of.

5.Certain countries are NOT purchasable at the moment. If you are outside of the United States, please visit snapchat.com/on-demand, log in with your snapchat account and check if your area is eligible. Everyone should log in and check their dates, locations, and times to get an exact estimate of what the snapchat fees would cost.
