Sorry if I'm behind the times, just did a new project that required a
pcb, and ExpressPCB is my go-to vendor for one-off boards. I just
noticed they now provide the low-cost boards (fixed size, 3x5, quantity
3) that I've always ordered with silk screen and solder mask for $71. I
got my latest boards that way and they're beautiful. No relationship to
them, just a happy customer. You can still get the barebones boards for
$51. The hack I used to use was to put the component id and such on the
top copper layer as tiny text, but that was a bit of a pain for layout.
(Oops, can't put that label there, it's copper and there's a trace there
also) Really nice to be able to get real boards, even if it does end up
The day Microsoft makes something that doesn't suck
will be the day they make vacuum cleaners.
Or maybe Windows 10.
