    My application is currently using Themes so that each client using the application can have its own look and feel.  This involves styling many of the telerik controls manually and not using the telerik skins.  However, some of the telerik controls will not be modified and will be using a skin and not all skinned controls will be using the same skin.

    My question is, "What is the best way to deal with the styles/skins for the telerik controls keeping in mind that they can be changed for each client?"

    I have been using the style builder to customize the controls I need and places that css into a telerik.css and then attaching that style sheet to the page. This method works but I just want some ideas / input on what other people are doing.

    Hi DJ,

    Telerik provides 23 embedded skins in our Telerik.Web.UI.Skins assembly. The skin appearance of the used controls is of high importance for everyone. Telerik is  providing not only more than 20 skins, but also created an online tool for point-and-click generation of custom skins for RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. So using Telerik style builder to customize the skin for the controls is a suggested approach from Telerik for creating a new skin from the existing skin as a template.
