There are two plastic supply houses here that sell colored acrylic and plastics of all kinds, including ballistic sandwiches.

Tom's source may prove better, but sign supply houses carry that stuff, but I forget the dimensions. In this area, PA, NJ, MD, NY..., try Harbor Supply.

I don't think acrylic is sold that thick around here. I've bought 1/2" if I remember correctly but for 3/4" sheets, polyethylene compounds (HDPE, UHMW) were my choice. They don't typically come in various colors either.

Suppliers to sign shops are definitely the place to look. You could start with a sign shop and ask where they would look.
