We used to make our own. We would get a large shallow cardboard box, fill it with paraffin. Let it cool. Then peel the cardboard away....
You can submerse that in formalin. And you can custom cut them to whatever size you need.

Does anyone know where to get specimen boards that you can pin specimens to and then submerse in formalin? I ordered them a long time ago and cannot remember where I got them.
