What's the best source for Ultracoat aka Oracover aka Polycover?

Looking for the best source (meaning best price and selection) of this covering material. All I can find is Hobby Lobby, what they list in their cataloge as Oracover is now Polycover which I understand was formaly known as Ultracoat. I found some checkered Ultracoat at Hobby Town in Fresno that sold for like $20 which I think is high. They say if you can show a lower price they will match it.

Thanks for any help.
Joe

Ledbetter,
Thanks, great selection of colors. Now I will have as hard of a time selecting a color or colors as I had picking the right plane to put it on.

Hobby Town in Fresno had about 6 or 7 colors when I was in there about 3 weeks ago. it was on the side that faces the car counter. I bought white which was 12 or 13 dollars but the checkerboard was alot more.
