Where to buy paddle light switches in bulk?

I think part of my problem is that I don't know what these are called:

I basically just want to replace the fugly almond toggle switches in my house with these. I don't need dimmers, just the regular new-style light switches. I need a dozen or so, so I was hoping some place online would sell them in bulk. Thanks for the help!

"Decora" style swiches. HD and Lowes sell them around here.

For what it's worth..I prefer the Cooper brand over the Pass-Seymor, a bit quieter, seem to be made better. They're at Lowes in boxes of 10 for the single pole, unfortunately you can only buy 3 and 4 way's individually.
