C&C cages are generally the best; you can make them as big as you want, which is something you can't do with store-bought. Downside is you need to layer the bottom with vinyl tiles or coroplast.

Agree with FlickeringHope. Most pet store cages on the market are too, too small. (I only know of one personally that meets even the bare minimums). C&C cages are the way to go -- easy to build and fully customizable. The instructions are at http://www.guineapigcages.com and they've got a photo gallery of designs, too.

Check in the phone book under "sign making supplies". Usually places like Signs to Go will have them.
