Category Problems

I'm trying to add the category "Screen Printing" to my business page. Every screen printing company around my city seems to have been able to put that in there as a category, but I can't.

 
Can someone tell me how I can do this or can someone perform this task for me?
 
Thanks.

there is no option to provide custom categories.

You have to select one of the closest general category for your listing

So, how are all of the companies around me able to use the same term?

Likely those listings have been created before GoogleMyBusiness was launched

Hello Brian,

 

I have checked your Business and other Screen Printer Businesses in Las Vegas and found that your Business is also showing the same category.

 

However your Business is not showing on maps as you have selected a Physical Store with Service Area and possible made recent edits that is why it might take up to 48 hours since your last edits on Business Page data to show on Maps.

 

I have attached a Screenshot of your Business Knowledge Panel on Google Search & Maps for reference.

Also would like you to make edits on Your Business Name once as on your website its showing as FOB Vegas however you have wrote FOB Vegas Custom Screen Printing on your Business Page that might create a problem for you in future as it violates Google My Business Name Policy.

 

Thank you
