Ugh, I am stuck in NJ too...I want to say try AC Moore if you have one near you.  If not, I believe if you use the deli container lids that are a grade "5", those do the same thing as the Shrinky Dink plastic.  Good luck!

I'm in NJ too.  Oops I meant to say Treasure Island sometimes has arts and crafts and if you're close to one, you can try Pearl Paint.  And the Shrinky Dink website.  http://www.shrinkydinks.com/  I just picked up a Shrinky Dink oven for $15 this past weekend too at Shop Rite. lol

I've ordered shrink plastic from mcgpaper.com and have been very pleased with their product and service.

I own power tools, and I'm not afraid to use them!

I live in South Jersey and the Michaels near me sells sheets of Shrinky Dink plastic.  In my store it's in the scrapbooking section, and hanging at the top.  Hope it helps.

I'm in Central Jersey, in Howell, and the Michael's near my home sells the Shrinky Dink sheets- all the different types. They are indeed in the scapbooking section hanging in a rack by the top of a shelf. I bought the ink-jet printer ones. I have't tried them yet- but they look cool.

If you are in a real jam you can always use a plastic container marked with a 6 in the recycle symbol as shrink plastic.  You can usually find these containers in the bakery.  (My husband likes the big Safeway cookies.  Those containers can be shrunk.)  They shrink up in the oven.  I've never tried a heat gun on them.
