You could cut up an old belt or use whatever you have laying around for tracking articles. Last week there was a coaster for a drink that Karlo had to indicate(track laid by a 'stranger' with unfamiliar articles)
Otherwise, you can order the regulation type articles from Elite, Hallmark, etc...

Look for packages of leather at hobby or fabric stores.

Just tried JoAnn Fabrics and Michaels. They only had really thin pieces. They must be thick and 4"x4". Also tried a shoe repair place with no luck.

Maybe try a few different shoe repair shops. That is what I did. They charged me $10 for a sheet of leather that made more than enough tiles for tracking.

Any shoe repair store will have extras. For leather articles I just ask them for a few pieces then cut them up as I like.

For carpet (assuming it's for articles) I usually go to like Home Depot or something.

For wood I just get those paint sticks at Home Depot
