DS Custom vs. DS Catalog Custom

DS Custom vs. DS Catalog Custom

We are excited to work with you on your custom look, but need to start by sharing that there are a couple different types of custom you can request.

First, let's create some common vocabulary.

DS Custom

1. Made to order

"a custom costume or uniform"


DS Catalog Custom

1. A DS catalog silhouette or pattern reimagined with alternate colors, fabrics, textures, and/or print to create a custom look without editing the silhouette/pattern.

"a catalog costume or uniform"

So, when we get your order started we may reference a couple different paths depending on what exactly you are looking for and what your timeline looks like. There are unique benefits to both options. Understanding how you can leverage the options can be extremely helpful as you begin your costume creation journey.

Benefits of both include:

DS Catalog Custom can move into production quicker

DS Custom allows you to create a completely custom look from scratch

DS Catalog Custom can provide cost savings depending fabric/print choices

The sky is the limit with DS Custom, but be aware that for a truly unique look you may incur additional expense and possibly a longer timeline for delivery. 

For DS Catalog Custom consider anything from all the DS catalogs. Nothing is off limits–Literally thousands of styles to choose from. Take a look at all the silhouettes in our catalogs.

If you are pressed for time you can always shop our in-stock offerings too.
