Plastic for locker sign suggestions

I’m looking to make name plates for some lockers. The ones we have now have a yellow top layer with a black bottom layer. The yellow gets carved out exposing the black and making the letters. Does anyone have a good source for this plastic? I haven’t been able to track any down yet. Bonus points if the supplier is in Canada! Attached is what we are trying to duplicate.

Perhaps contact these guys: http://www.kingplastic.com/distributors/

Or call these guys and ask: http://www.canadianengravers.com/Supplies/index.php?Category=4&Series=20&Section=38&Product=103&PageTitle=Laserables%202nd%20Surface

If it’s a one-off, I’ve found it’s wildly more cost effective to buy a sheet of 1/16" colored plasic and spray paint an even coating to mill through.

Have a look for Traffolyte. It is (or was) a product out of the UK but the name seems to be applied to multi layer plastic sheet for engraving.

Why not try Inventables?

If love to get it from Inventables but the shipping, duty and exchange would make the $14 piece arrive at my door for $50. We are in Canada and our dollar is very weak against the US dollar right now.

Thanks to @earwigger for the canadianengravers site, I will call them in the morning. I could not think what the material was called and every search term I used came up with the wrong stuff.

Yikes!
