My local flooring / carpet shop had loads in their catalogues. Bought a
pebble one for a small bathroom.

stores?

2mm thick tiles, printed vinyl, laminated, whats listed as temporary
floor graphics in a retailer should last years in domestic enviroment.

Try sign printers.

We looked at some in Carpet Right a while ago, while buying the
thickest vinyl they did - it's a "pile" vinyl, feels kinda weird
like a short haired brush when rubbed - but IIRC the colour
rendition of the patterns looked pretty horrible (muted), and
the feel of the stuff itself was horrible to the touch.

I think it was called something Flo, or something Flow

flotex or flotex HD.
Not vinyl but some sort of plastic carpet.
The HD stuff is better printed.

Sheet - good quality - cut to size by retailer. (But was ordered in to suit)
