Best small run PCB manufacturer

Started by Klaus Jensen January 11, 2012
Can anyone tell me, who are the currently preferred "economy" PCB
manufacturers operating online with worldwide postal delivery?

Basic doubled sided. Less than 100 x 100mm in size.

Small runs: 10-25 pcs.

No overlay or mask. Cheap but nice.

Thanks,

Klaus

I have previously ordered from pcbcart and PCBfabExpress. But I am now = using=20 www.eintervconnect.com. They were originally zoompcb.com. They have=20 reasonable prices and very good communication. Plus they are a US=20 manufacturer (Chicago) with their own fab so I don't mind paying a = little=20 bit more. Don't worry - I don't get kickbacks! Paul=20

Same here. Word of advice.... forget 'No solder mask' and 'no overlay'. You'll only save a few pennies. I used to use pcbexpress in the USA for small runs ( without mask/overlay cos it was cheaper) then I found pcbcart.... They have on-line price calculator and shipping calculator so you will know exactly the cost, less Duty,Vat,Customs Clearance in your country.....

I've used Olimex a few times, albeit not for a couple of years. They were very good value and quality. Cheers -- Syd

I've used Olimex before and they were very good at actually getting me through the process 'cause I did not have much experience in ordering PCBs. They took just the Eagle file and basically processed it internally and produced the boards. I think at the time I could have saved something like $10 (on 10 very small boards) by going through Open PCB or BatchPCB or other similar services but I would have to make sure I've done all the layers Gerber files and the drill file correctly and it was not worth the trouble for me. They've done a very good job overall, so I can defintiely recommend them. ------------------------------------- /_/ ((@v@)) ():::() VV-VV
