cheap shower surround options?

I'm researching options for a shower surround.
We have the base already set, and the walls are sheetrocked with greenboard.
Initially we were going to tile, but now are looking into a cheaper alternative.
The base is oddly proportioned (42x36) and doesn't really fit any of the pre-fab surrounds.
Any one know of a manufacturer of shower wall systems that can be cut to fit, or have any other ideas?
Google hasn't really been helping much.
Thanks.........

zekeboone,

Cheaper alternative can mean different things but you can start with these. If you can't find anything on google, you can search by going to others. Next best thing - shop by going to stores - rare nowdays but it still happens.

I used a Mustee 5-piece. 3 walls with 2 corner pieces. My shower is 30 x46. Their surrounds will fit a certain size range. You glue them up. Ours went up easily and looks nice and was fairly inexpensive.

We had our tub surrond done by a local company that does them...seamless. They basically use a laminiate, like for countertops. They take the overall demensions and heat the laminate to make the corner bends to fit your set-up. Come in and glue it to the wall, then seal the laminate at the tub. Never a seam to gather the mildew,etc..and soo easy to wash and keep clean.
I then got a piece of the same pattern to use for my custom made vanity top w/porkchop that I designed so now, every matches. Looks cool!
