The title pretty much explains it. I had a website in my favorites wher I could get a pack of 50 of about $12, but when I got a new computer I lost it and now I can't find the website. Where do you guys buy from?

Do you mean dots? A bit of info might be helpful if you want help.
lowes has samples of laminate for counter tops in tons of different styles. pick up some, go at them with a coping saw or a dremel and you're in business for $0.
Yes, I mean dots. Sorry for being unclear.
I've only built three CBG's so I'm new to this also . CBG #! no dots . On #2 fretboard (#3 CBG) , having cut gemstones for years I used abolone . But it still takes time to do the "lapidary" thing . Then one day looking for a pick (always) I stumble across a heavy Fender "pearl" pick . I then took the "sacrificial" pic to my jewelers bench and grabbed a "hollow" punch that i use for making silver buttons . Think cookie cutter . Using a 1/4" punch = 6-7 "dots" . A matter of seconds . A paper hole punch might work ? My "hollow" punches (wad cutters) are old school , but I think the HF discount tool place may have them if your into saving $$$ like the rest of us .

I have used the Pearl ex pigments for a whole bunch of projects. I buy the 3min. two part epoxy and mix just a little bit of the color in one side of the epoxy. It works best if you use one epoxies that has the self mixing nozzles. just drill a small hole fill it with the epoxy mix, let dry, then sand. One jar of the powder last a long time.
I buy much of the hardware I use on Ebay including MOP dots. A quick search will net numerous sizes and colors. The seller I've used a lot is woodenspoke not quite as cheap as $12 per 50 but close. They are based out of Colorado and shipping is reasonable.
