Default Source for Large Cork Board Material or Prefabricated Board

I am looking for a really big sheet of cork board material, or even a prefabricated board, around 11' x 4'. This is used to hang orders for the comming week on for dispatching trucks. My current board is worn out, and a little more room would definitely be a huge help.

The other option is to get a large sheet of metal and use magnetic clips, but those are a little slower to use, cork & push pins are definitely the prefered method.

Seems that I've seen what you are looking for available in 1 foot squares. Easy enough to mount them to whatever size you want.

Another option is to glue 2x4 ceiling tiles to a sheet of 1/4" plywood and use outside corner mold for the frame. If you are looking for something nice, cover it with fabric before adding the frame.

OR, if they are renovating a school near you check with the GC, there may be one to be removed. At least they can put you in touch with a supplier for a new one.
