Will they cut the pattern if you supply a template? 

According to their website they only cut the foam to rectangles, not the individual cutouts for all the bits that go into the foam.

Or do they do that too?

Chaps, it's very easy to do it yourself if you've got the right tool:

I'm not joking, I've done mine with one of these and it's fine. Draw your template outline onto the foam, poke your scissors through the centre of the cutout section to give the blade somewhere to start, then carve your way around the edge.

Hot wire is the way to go. Far better results than electric knife. 

Check out YouTube I found this one with a quick search.

Perhaps I just hit lucky with the type of foam, but the hot wire would only be able to do a better job if it made me a cup of coffee afterwards...

I have never asked about custom cut outs.

Worth an email though.
