    Grimco sells aluminum with reflective sheeting pre-installed.
    contact whomever you get your substrate from.

    or get the aluminum blanks and apply the reflective as needed

    Grimco can't cut smaller than 6in. We've been getting 6 x 36 and using or sheer to split 'em. Outr sheer isn't made for that thickness and makes it very difficult, if not damaging.

    We try to keep 10-20 on hand. Maybe use 8 -10 about every 2 months or so

    Update. Our sheer works but you have to put a lot of weight into it. It's a foot operated lever and if you're a lightweight well...

    if your suppliers are unable to cut the material for you, really odd if they can't.
    Try calling a local machinist / CNC operator and have them cut multiple sheets of material, you then apply graphics as needed

    harbor sales in maryland can cut the 080, you'd have to apply the reflective yourself

    I think you answered your own question...... just get a heavy person on that machine and keep the cost in-house.
