Where can I find unusual sized melamine shelves?

When we bought our house, the garage came with some very nice cabinets already installed. This weekend I found myself wanting a few extra shelves for them, and I have so far been unsuccessful in finding any that will work. They are fairly standard looking white melamine shelves, but apparently the size is unusual. Is there somewhere I can go to get truly custom shelves made (or find a wider variety of sizes)?

The biggest issue seems to be that the shelves are 18" deep. The deepest I found at Home Depot and Lowe's were around 12-14". They're also almost 36" wide, so a deep narrow shelf (as in our linen closet) won't work. They're 1" thick, and all of the shelves at the big box stores were thinner (that may not be a huge issue, but since it's fairly wide, I'd appreciate the extra thickness). I'll of course also need the little pegs to hold them up (not sure if those are standard or not, but I don't have any spares).
I looked all over the cabinets for a sticker or some other identifying mark for who made/installed them, but no luck there.
What's the best course of action here?
