Where can I purchase a decorative acrylic shower surround wall?

Hi all! I'm not a contractor or plumber... I would like to have my old one piece fiberglass tub removed and replaced with a walk in shower (tub to shower conversion). Instead of contacting a bath remodel business where a salesman comes to your home to special order the materials and remove & install themselves after you sign some hefty contract, I would like to order the materials myself and hire my own independent contractor and plumber. I know it's extra work on my part, but I'm willing to do it in order to cut costs.

My plumber can order a solid color fiberglass or acrylic shower for me, but I would like to find one of those decorative (textured, eye catching) surround walls to pair with a solid white shower base/pan and clear glass doors. I found one that I just love called "River Rock" and found it on this website: Have no idea where to purchase something like this on my own. I have found places to order the solid colors from, but can't seem to find a place to order those pretty acrylic walls that those "all in one package deal" bath companies are able to offer. Whenever I search online, I keep coming across businesses that want to contact me for a home consultation, but I don't want that. I just want to know where these business order their acrylic designer surround walls for showers/tubs so I can order them myself.

If anyone can offer ideas, that would be great. If not, I will probably just order a solid acrylic (or fiberglass) white wall/base and install obsure glass doors. Or I could just hang it up and re-glaze the tub since it's in great shape. Thanks in advance!!!

From what I've heard you're out of luck. Those "all in ones" have their own suppliers that do not sell to anyone else, not even a plumber like me.
