Hey I am working on a project where I'm doing a vacuum formed poster for a band. I need sheets big enough for 12"x12" or 11"x17". I mostly need gloss white in .06 or slightly thicker. But I also need gloss blue, red, and yellow.

I cannot find any suppliers in the United States except if I order 1000 pounds of each.
There are plenty of companies in the UK, but shipping will probably be a nightmare.

Can anyone help. I think I need HIPS, .06 thickness or greater.

Have you tried U. S. Plastics?

I never used them for vac forming (never did vac forming actually) but they have all sorts of plastic everything. Prices are good (but quality of their welded process tanks is not great)

Dallas, TX, I can get white and black all day. But the only place in the states I can get colored sheets wants me to order 1000 pounds of each color.
