Step 4: Watch it come live on Snapchat

Once your order is ready, we’ll send you an email with the link to your Snapchat lens along with a Snapcode. In order to activate the lens, click on the link using your mobile device that has the Snapchat App installed in it. Alternatively, you can open the Snapchat App and long press the screen while focusing your camera over the Snapcode. Once you do this, you will see a pop up asking if you’d like to activate the lens for a period of 24 hours. Click on activate and watch your lens come live!!
