Default Wood sourcing

I'm working with a local engraver to design and market drink coasters. We are thinking cork or felt backed wood.
Anyone have a suggestion for where we can source thin woods, maybe 1/4" to 3/16" thick.
Also need a source for cork (with or without sticky since we can use 3M 77 or 90 to attach it to the wood.)

Thanks

?...why wouldn't you just rip and plane (thickness) your own material from rough cut stock? Or, if you don't have the equipment, get a small millwork shop to do you a bunch? Or a serious hobby woodworker to do it for you? (MT Stringer pops to mind! )

Don't know about in the US, but here you can get rolls of thin cork (1/16" or 1/8") from model shops. It's used for something in model railway layouts.

Rockler and Woodcraft both have material 1/8",3/16"/1/4"/3/8",1/2", etc. You can get sheet cork at the hobby shops.
But I would make my own.

I don't have a bandsaw that would work to resaw. Nor the time. I'm trying to outsource all parts of this project.
