I believe that Jack had some made and may have some left or could get them made again. Jack Mayeaux 503-267-8824

Then there is these:

Note the reproduction is different, for spring bases. The one on the cushion says "All New Materials KAPOK" for the loose cushions. I don't know where I got the photo with the reproduction tag from. I have only ever used the first one.

Keep in mind they were not used until after April 1940.

There are inkjet processes and printers that could make short work of these on most any type of material. These could be done a few at a time relatively easy.
