Where to purchase individual pickets ?

I'm building a picket fence in my backyard. I need to purchase ~ 400 individuals pickets (PT Pine), 42" - 48" tall, 1 3/4" wide x 3/4 " deep, either gothic or pointed tops. Lowe's doesn't have what I want (only 48" french gothic pine, or 42" ash pointed, neither pressure treated). Would I be able to order something like this from a contractor or a lumber yard ? I don't have the tools (nor skill) to cut my pickets, so I will need to purchase them. Fencing contractors in my area are bidding ~$5500+ for 205 feet of wood picket, and I estimate it's only going to be ~$1500 to do it myself. This is why I'm not hiring someone.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you're going to paint this white, I'd skip the wood and buy plastic - the maintenance on wood outside is way more than the extra cost of the plastic. If you still want wood, the lumberyard is a better bet than a big box store.
