Retro-reflective tape

Does anyone know where i can find some good quality orange retro-reflective tape, preferably with shipping to australia? I'm trying to colour coordinate my bike, and the orange reflective tape i just got is about as bright as my face, so am looking for something brighter... thanks

try this: http://www.identi-tape.com/. It might be cheaper to google for an Australian source.

Are Australian trucks required to put reflective tape on their trailers? They type used in the US on trucks is some of the best available. It has a narrower angle of reflectance that other types of tape, but is also brighter.

Have a chat with your local municipality's public works division.

We've regularly picked up tons of the best quality stuff you can get from them just for asking--trims from the sign shop.

Wonderful stuff.

Try this: http://www.streetglo.net/reflective.tape/
They have lots of colors and decals as well. (I'm planning to do my bike up in blue and white.) The worldwide 4-week parcel shipping doesn't look too expensive.
