6 inch floor tiles - vinyl or linoleum

Does anyone know - are there any manufacturers of six inch floor tiles? I'm looking for vinyl or linoleum tiles, in solid black and white. And if nobody makes them, are there companies that will cut 12 inch tiles into 6 inches?

Thanks!

I've seen twelve inch that were quartered into black and white providing a 6 inch checkerboard layout.

Dura ceramic makes 8x8 tile in black or white that can be used with or without grout. It is actually 16x16 that is scored into quarters and then can be separated inot the 8x8's nice looking and looks great with grout too.http://www.congoleum.com/res-product...ne=duraceramic

You can do it yourself with a VCT tile cutter. The site-made cuts would blend away nicely seeing as how you have a checkerboard pattern. I've never seen one available for rent though and they run around $200.
