Default Clear Heavy Weight Acetate for Card Bases

I am looking for heavy weight acetate (7 MM)for card bases.
I looked at a thread from last year that recommended to buy from Flourishes ot PaperTrey,just wondering if there are any other places where you can buy in bulk, say 50 or 100 sheets. They have great prices but the shipping cost is more then the acetate. I see that some people call this Clear Cardstock but then it sometimes gets confused with Vellum.
Thanks in advance for any tips where I can find this!

Here are some acetate sheets on Amazon. They have lots of different weights, and the price looks pretty reasonable.

Amazon.com: Grafix Clear Acetate, .003, 100 sheets: Office Products

Possible other resources:

The Paper Cut: Acetate

Crystal Clear Plastic, Medium Weight 8 1/2" x 11" (10 pk) (Ellen Hutson - .007)

Inky Antics Rubber Stamps

Product Listings |Crystal Clear and So Much More | PaperTemptress.com

Dura-Lar Film from Grafix - Marco's Paper (.007)

I have a bulk pack from 'Short Cuts' but I tried now to find them on the web without success. There is an email address on the paper package if you'd like to try to contact them: sheetload-shortcuts@comcast.net.

Here's another option:

Presentation Covers

I have some of these in a smaller pack - they work great for cards. The first review states that they are 7 mils thick.

I have the acetate sheets from Flourishes and I love the weight of them. But I agree that the cost of shipping from there is a bit much. Does anyone know how to decipher the different weights of the acetate? In this thread, some of the comments refer to the weights as 7MM, .003 and .020 but what exactly is the difference between them? I prefer the heavy weight like the one from Flourishes (and they don't tell you what the weight is) because it makes nice sturdy treat boxes.
