    This is what I do.

    Go down to Wal Mart or wherever and get a 24" x 36" poster frame. Should cost about $10. Take out the paper insert that it comes with and turn it over. Using a yardstick, draw your 1" grid with a light pencil. Put the paper back into the poster from and there you go. Cheap, large, and durable. And if something happens to it, it only costs $10 to replace.

    I third the easel pad nomination. We also picked up a handful of colourful Crayola markers to go with it. Being able to prep several re-usable maps in advance is awesome.

    Cheap Tact-Tile alternative...

    Print out a one-inch grid on 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheets of overhead projector transparencies. Three hole punch them and keep them in a binder.

    Brilliant!

    Or I could buy one of those easal pads that are gridded and 24x37 and stick one of the sheets in there!

    Yay!

    You can use an acrylic cover like this to also use blown up maps, detailed tiles, or PDF maps without messing them up. If these don't come with a grid, you can add one to the underside of the acrylic sheet.

    There was a similar thread over on CM. Here's what I found and posted over there:

    You would acquire one here. You could get one elsewhere, but it looks like other comparable things are $500-800.

    Edit: You might also check out these. I'm not sure how "subtle" the grid is, or how large the spaces are, though.

    Yep, a sheet of plexi/acrylic is used by all sorts of wargamers who play game that come w/out mounted maps.

    I picked up a magnetic dry-erase board at Costco for about $20. While it didn't have a lined grid it did have a dot every inch (think of the dots at the corners of the square.) This board came with several markers, eraser, and bottle of cleaner. This board replaced my MegaMat about 2 years ago.
    I just found the manufacturer's site.
