Question Retro-reflective tape? Where to get?

I'm looking at doing some visibility work on my Wee and was wondering where do you guys source the 3M reflective tape(or equivalent)? The only places I've been able to find are industrial suppliers and will only sell cases for $$$$$.

Thanks in advance.

I bought some yellow reflective off ebay, and some black reflective, too. Just search for 3m reflective tape. You can find sheets, rolls, and strips. I paid about $6 for enough to do my dorky bee thingy on my helmet...

I found smaller cuts available on Ebay. 28" wide by whatever gives plenty of options for Strom bodywork.

The true (and best) retro reflective is 3M "SOLAS". I've never seen it at Walmart.

I have bought it from Aerostich, and from West Marine. Any well stocked boat shop should have it.
There is no comparison between the cheapy stuff and SOLAS once the lights go out.
