    I was using Seeed until recently their $5.00 special for 10 100mm x 100mm boards is still in effect, but they don't ship H.K. Mail any more, only DRL or Fed-Ex so the shipping is $30.00 to Canada.
    PCBway still ships China post for $10, so not so bad.
    OK if you don't need expedited service!

    Don't think I have tried them, will check them out.

    I plugged in a current board 100mm x 80mm and the shipping was free via HK post, but the board cost was way more.

    I've just tried ALLPCB so far. Maybe it's time to try others. Even though I'm new at prototyping PCBs.

    I've never worked with anyone else for low cost prototyping either, but I've been very happy with the 3 jobs I've done through ALLPCB. Two were PCB only, and the third included parts sourcing and assembly. On time, on budget, worked well every time.

    Interesting. Their site quotes me $23 for what Seeed quotes $60. That big of a difference always makes me suspicious.

    And one of my friend ordered the PCB and he is amazed by its quality vs cheap rate.

    I've had a couple of orders from JLCPCB.com now and have been very pleased with the results. Way cheaper than my old supplier!
