If you're in Bay Area, I have many places I can recommend.

Edit to add: You can also find materials by clicking on the "Grids" and "Coro" on the top nav of this forum.

I think Sears have better pricing than the Bed Bath & Beyond grids. You'll get more panels in each box from Sears.

A much better price, wish I knew, I drove over 30 minutes yesterday to get another box at BBB. I did order the coro from this site though. I do not like the white with my black grids.

Call around for sign shops in the area. Were I live, I was able to get a 4ftx8ft coro sheet for $20. I got my grids at Meijer's but doubt you have those there, they also cost $20 per box but make sure they are 9x9 slots and not less.. Lots and lots of zip ties (or extra connectors) , good box cutter, and a good tape was really it for me. It's kind of a learn as you go type of thing to see what works best for you. Have fun! Once you get started up with a c&c cage it's hard to leave it alone; you'll want to rearrange and add all the time. :)

LOL..yuppers, I have a total of 4 boxes of grids and redone the coro to black to match the grids. I am also ready to order black coro from the shop here just to have....
