This is a question always been asked so I try to make this list to cover as many pcb manufacturers as I can.

This is a listing of websites making PCBs and  also may including PCBAs. I will try to update the infomation now and then.

http://www.pcbway.com/ -$5!!!
























http://imall.iteadstudio.com/open-pcb/pcb-prototyping.html?p=2&price=-100 - $0.2 !!!




https://www.protoexpress.com/ - SierraCircuits











The list is not in any priority. I've never ordered board from any houses. I've just made board with the first two entries.

This is a "work in progress". New board houses may be added, along with some comments.

I think I can add more comparing information here for reference.

1. PCBWay pcb prototype company

A manufacturer that specialized in PCB industry. $5 cut for the first order. If you need long-term purchasing, they provide more coupons. More customization choices vs itead. Delivery time with DHL or HongKong post is pretty satisfying. Shipping fee is much cheaper. According to my experience,you can also get the free universal boardsPlacing an order is simple. Type in the specification and upload the files, waiting for auditing! Then dont worry, there's someone contacting you if there's something wrong with the file.


2. pcbgeek

PCBGEEK.COM is specialized in 1-22 layers boards in Prototype,Small & middle volume PCB with fast speed according to clients' requirement. They also can do Blind/Buried Hole Board, High Tg Thick Copper PCB, Mix- Material Multilayer PCB, Flexi-rigid Board, Flexible Board, Metal Core Board, Aluminum Board, Thick gold plated board, Solder Stencil and so on. 




I am not familiar with following houses. Welcome your discussion!

3.San Francisco Circuits

I’ll be using a PCB manufacturing service called EasyEDA to manufacture. It’s a lot easier (and cheaper) to design your PCB and order it directly from EasyEDA. You could track this link to learn more details about the customized PCB service. https://easyeda.com/Doc/Tutorial/PCBOrder.htm#PCB-Order

EasyEDA offers high quality but low price Customized PCB service.  You could register on EasyEDA now to win 5 dollars cash coupon of making PCB.

My experience with Seeed Studio for pcb manufacturing is so far very positive. I've made more than 20 different designs using their service over the last two years and nearly all were perfect. Only in one case they made the silkscreen a bit unclear but not too bad to discard the boards. For the price they ask they are really good.

So many pcb manufacturers, found a few familiar ones, but I have tried only one of them (https://www.wellpcb.com/

 ), their minimum order is at least one board, I ordered a small order of 10pc, 2 layers, five days mail to me, the quality of the boards are fine.

jlcpcb is the best for the price and the quality of the product


if your pcb size is not more than 100mmx100mm and max 2 layered they made it only for 2$ in 2 days and shipping takes max 5 days (shipping available to most country)


they support via and hole plating

diffrerent pcb colors are avaible  ( green , red, yellow, blue, white, black) for 2$ prototypes you can only choose green


pcb solder mask  is made so you dont have to worry about oxidation.


you can check the process of your product from the site online

and i suggest you to choose DHL for the shipping .

Hello dear,

Nice information about PCB Manufacturing. PCB assembly comprises several electronic components that enable the functioning of an electronic device. PCB assembly services consist of multi-stage processes that include placing components on a PCB board, soldering them in place, and inspecting and testing these components. PCB assembly is often outsourced by OEMs to a specialist firm, as setting up a printed circuit board assembly unit requires a significant investment. There are hundreds of tiny components that help complete the circuit in a printed circuit board. A few months ago one of my friends takes the service from GREATPCB SMT LIMITED, which specializes in and guarantees prompt delivery of fast-turnaround PCB and PCB assemblies. 

Thanks & Regards,
Yuaan Liie
