Source for clay pavers

I have a customer who is determined to find a clay paver that he had installed at his old house. I have not been able to find the exact match. Any help would be apreciated.

if not done so already, visit *brick* suppliers, don't even bother with hardscape suppliers.

Also, I get this same thing a few times a year, people wanna match 57 year old brick on their house. It would take me 5 hrs just to go to all the brick yards and try to find a match. If we're still in the pricing stages and the job is not officially our's, I'm not gonna devote 5 hrs to trying to find a freakin match just so I can give them a price.

This is what I tell the propsective client:

"You find a supplier with a clay paver that you feel is the closest match, and I'll be happy to quote you an exact price, but in the meantime I'm going to give you a *Preliminary* estimate and we'll adjust the cost once we know what paver you want to use".

My Equipment Brag List:

-1 CAT hat
-16 pairs of Hanes socks (the Heavy Duty model), many with holes.
-12 pairs of underwear, ranging from Joe Boxers to Jockey, many are in need of replacement. (no more photo requests please)
-hundreds of t-shirts. Some w/ grease stains, some torn & tattered.
-7 pairs of jeans, ranging from Levis to Polo to GAP. 1/2 of them have holes in 'em.
-1 belt
-1 pair of old worn out Nike shoes.
