Your local sign maker should be able to sell you some various sized pieces.

Larger craft stores may have it on hand too...if they do any BIG custom framing.

Another place to purchase it is your local plastics shop. It comes in 4'x8' sheets. Another name for it is "coreplast" (spelled slightly different).

I've made a Trimble Backdrop (Frances Marshall's Success Books series) and a victory carton illusion (UF Grant book) from coreplast, as well as some "presents" (props) for my sleigh illusion (Paul Osborne's Big Black Book).

Be sure to use a metal straight edge to cut against, if using an xacto knife. It helps.

SHHHH don't give away my secret source!
I will be gathering a lot of it this evening now that the elections are finished! One side is still nice and white, blue, yellow, etc., and the other can be painted over.
Oh and the big ones in 4x8 foot sheets are really nice!
TAP plastics also carries it, but it costs a lot more!
