I know that you can make an appointment with Costco to do this and I think also HD offers it as well. Not sure on any others.

Do you need something completely custom due to specific dimensions? If not, go to Ikea and check out their Pax system. You essentially buy the other shell (comes in 2 sizes) and then outfit it with whatever options you want. It's much cheaper than getting a custom system.

Depending how fancy or simple you want to go, if you're handy, you can build your own closet organizer with some inexpensive material from HD.

You can use MDF cut to the sizes you need for uprights and shelving then paint it or buy the melamine 48"x96" with pre-drill holes for uprights and a 4x8 sheet to cut your shelves.

I used the melamine option for a walk-in closet and needed 6 uprights and a 4x8 sheet for shelves plus some hanging rods. It probably cost me under $150.00.

If you want drawers in the closet then it would get more costly and complicated.

Here is a how to article. I used the material with pre-drilled holes so the shelves could be moved up or down and didn't require cleats.

I also used this site to design it first-
