By far the best material comes from 3M (the Sick LMS can pick this stuff
out from *very* far away):
3M Scotchlite Very High Gain Reflectors 2000X
107, 8 1/2 in x 11 in, 20 sheets per carton
3M Id : 75-0299-4422-2
Comes in both sheets and rolls. I would tell you how much it costs, but
that would spoil the nasty suprise.
