cheap PCB services, now with panneling!

http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/fus...ice-p-835.html

*i do not work for these people and i have no financial stake in the company*

ive used them before (once). profesional looking results. slow as molassas transit time. registered shipping, so you have to sign for it.

before they had allowed no pannelizing, but now they do. up to 5 pannels. the price is 9.90, its more like 13 after shipping. for 10 boards, 5cm x 5cm. prices go up from there.

just sayin. i tire of etching boards, and getting most wrong. its simple, and cheap and looks great.

Yea, I've been using them for a while for stuff I don't care about. Quality is poop for production but for rough prototypes they're great.

I have tried quite a few of the low cost PCB services including Seeed. They were definately not the best quality but were acceptable.

Most of my PCBs now are small RC projects of 2 sq in or so, and I have been using http://dorkbotpdx.org/wiki/pcb_order The PCBs are good quality and cost $5/sq in. for 3 boards.

Maybe worth a try for me, only ever home etched/screen. Almost cheaper then the bare double sided. But since skip diving a laminator the old toner transfer is amazing down to 0.08 no sweat. via's are still a bitch; 90 odd on the last etch.
