I get mine from AIN Plastic here in Marietta. I see on their website they have a branch in Tampa.

Look in the phone book under plastics.

The best prices are usually for 4 x 8 foot sheets from a local plastics supplier. Thin plastics are so cheap in quantity that that's often cheaper than just a few small sheets from other sources.

Unfortunately, some plastics suppliers have a minimum order of $100 to keep the riffraff out, and it generally doesn't say that in their ad. Call around to find out which ones are happy sell single sheets. (I found two within a couple of miles of me.)

Some will cut your big sheet of plastic into a few smaller sheets for free. Others will charge you a ~$10 cutting fee. ) Some will charge you unless you say you want it "nominal" dimensions, i.e., you don't precision cut.) But for thin plastics, you can generally just take the sheet home rolled up, and score & snap it yourself.
