I am testing the process of making daguerreotypes
I use an electric buffer to polish copper-sheets myself. For a plate of
4x5inch it takes about 10 to 15 minutes.
When I ask to cut my plates in the factory ... I insist to be very carefull
because I do not want scratches on them ...

  I don't know how high a degree of polish you need for your Polaroid
transfers but you might find that the copper from a roofing supplier used
for flashing may be sufficient and would be relatively reasonable for larger
pieces. Since this is a relatively malleable metal you could probably also
polish it further with a power buffer or a buffer wheel on an electric
drill. Just some alternative thoughts to the art supply sources.
