Buying W, S and M shapes to split into the corresponding tees is fairly common. Some fabricators have the splitting equipment. In small quantities like you are talking about, that may be the best approach.
 
If you want to buy tees, you can go to a processing facility like Arkansas Steel Processing or a service center may have tees. If you contact the metal service center institute, they may be able to steer you to an appropriate service center.
