    If you live in the US, I would suggest advanced circuits. They have a nice $33 / each deal. I prefer to spend more time designing rather than trying to build a PCB from scratch, as I used to when I was younger. Also, there are too many great surface mount parts to use these days that would be difficult to solder with a homebrew PCB.

    Steve, what's their website URL?
    Several different URL's come up with that same company name.

    www.4pcb.com
    or www.33each.com

    Catch is, they make you buy 4 and they 'give' you one for free. You're supposed to pay 50$ if you have multiple boards on the 60 square inches, but I just 'trick it out' so that it looks like one big pcb. Good old superfluous traces :D

    If you are not in a hurry, Batch PCB is one of the cheapest. It's by the sq. inch ($2.50) for single boards plus $10 setup. John
