Most window glass companies will have Plexiglas as well in fairly large sizes. Home improvement stores will have some, but probably not in large sizes.

I disagree . . . . yes, there is an initial cost involved, but the plexiglass will last for many years.

I have one 4x8' white sheet that has been used for over a hundred shoots. I lay it down over portion of the white seamless that is on the floor to protect the paper, as well as provide a pleasing, very slight, reflection.

This is one of those items that I would recommend to every studio photographer. It's well worth the investment.

Here is an example from a recent catalog shoot of what the plexi looks like on a white seamless . . .

If you want it white look for masonite.  It's thin like paneling but white on one side and a wood color on the other.  Particle board, not wood grain.
