If you freeze the rubber stopper with LN2 you can drill it. Coiling your own cheap FO cable is pretty simple and pretty cheap

Blurb works well. great quality and relatively fast. CEWE gets good reviews, BobBooks, WhiteWall and Photobox are all in the game but I think Blurb is probably your best bet

In your mind, what is large? 30x40 inches ( 762 x 1016 mm ) on Al will be at least $390 plus shipping. That is if you want to print yourself.

Saves you the trouble of molding your own.

Get some multiple core fiber from industrial fiber optics ($7/meter)

Wind it around a wooden dowel, put in water bring to boiling then cool. 

Perfect coiled fiber cable for less than $20.

If you are not trying to use an LED to trigger but using a flash, then any 1mm fiber will do and bring the price down by half
