I've never been able to get .020 stock for folders which are this
size.  If you can use .010 stock, Metal Edge has sold us the ends of
the rolls which they use to make their large corrugated board.  In
1998 we got a roll of 150 pounds (about 665 linear feet) that was 56
inches wide.

For folders that are a bit smaller, Metal Edge had 48 by 72 inch
sheets. In 2000, they cut these sheets so that we could make folders
that are 44 by 70 inches.  We used gummed linen tape for the hinging
on these.
