You've been told this before you must not remember.
Carolina Composites will do your custom work.

Yes but he only has 0.8 mm stock plate to make the fins and I dont think they will hold up. 1 mm is the minimum thickness I am going for.

And no vendor has ever purchased raw materials for a custom project?

These fins are small at 2" root cord and 3/4" fin span correct? I have some small carbon fabric pieces that should be enough for me to make you the sheet. Now as far as making the airfoils I can not do them perfectly as you may want them to be.

PM me if you want to go through with this.

Such tiny fins....
Can you tell us how you determined that 0.8mm was insufficient, but 1mm would be fine?
