In the catalog menu, there is a listing of the current catalog theme and the six previous ones, for a total of seven at one time. The listing displays the catalog's name and an image of the top selling item, along with the name of the user that submitted it. From here, if they are a member, the player can either access the current catalog, and submit an item, which is done through the same process as creating an item, but with a limitation on what blueprints, fabrics, or decals can be used, all of which are restricted to the selected catalog's theme. After creating an item, it can be submitted to the catalog. The item the player creates does not require spending coins to design, and the player does not keep it.
If the player selects one of the seven catalog themes, a listing of items other players submitted is shown. By default, this listing is sorted by most recently submitted, but can be switched to display the highest sold items, or items submitted by users the player is friends with. Items can be also sorted by item category, such as hair & hats items or full body items.
The listing displays a grid of icons of the submissions, along with the username of the player that submitted it below the icon. Selecting an item gives a preview of the item worn on a penguin, the name of the item, and how many purchases it has. If the player is a member, they can buy the item for the shown price, which always costs about 10-15 coins more than the price of creating an item through the Customizer. Additionally, items can be bought from the catalog regardless the player's Penguin Level. For instance, a level 4 player could buy a submitted New Dimensions item, even though the blueprint used to make the item is received at level 10.

Make some prehistoric athletic wear... but without the smell
In addition to the four standard daily challenges, there is a fifth extra challenge, which involves submitting an item to the day's current catalog. The name and description of the challenge corresponds to the day's current catalog theme as well.
