    These are offered for sale fairly regularly on EBay under the Crafts/Framing section, although usually in the larger sizes. The size you are looking for would be small for a vacuum press.

    Heath Robinson approach

    At xmas my wife purchased some 4 inch wide felt which is tacky on both sides. This is sold as Christmas card hanger. I cut this into strips and stuck it to a piece of ply that I had roughed up a little with sand paper. Paper will stick nice and flat to the felt, best of all the paper peels off nicely, its well worth a try.

    They have a range of units. I purchased the AY360 and am delighted with it.
