    You can actually purchase the Gerber files from ExpressPCB, I had used them to make a prototype PCB, then got the Gerbers and sent them out to another company to produce the boards and populate them.

    Eagle CAD will also generate Gerbers, DXF, or NC files for your PCB's, you just have to use the right ULP to produce what file format you need.

    I've done the same with them. Costs you twice the price, once to buy the physical boards, and again for the files. At least you have a known board to verify early on.

    I'm not complaining, they are an excellent service. Good cheap and fast is very hard to find.
