My main source of raw sheet styrene is similar.
I have the old letters from a portable sign at one of my old jobs

Walmart/Kmart usually has sales a few times a year. Like now after summer the yard sale signs go on sale. Here in BNA found some yesterday for $ .25 each. The yard sale signs are a bit thinner, roughly .015-.0185 but still compared to 1.85 for 1 8"x6" sheet..
Happy modeling....

I've found plastic sign makers sometimes have fairly large sheets in their waste bins which they are happy to give away.
