Elecrow. Tried to order boards from your service. The order was $58 and it adds $12 for shipping. In the first post, you mention that you offer free shipping on orders over $50...

Hi Thewknd, really sorry for the miss, we have canceled the free shipping for order over 50 after Chinese Spring festival, and this topic was posted in long time ago, we are didn't modified it, sorry again for the miss. Now, we have do some changes in this post. Thank you.

Best Regards

I've tested the elecrow service and received my order after 13 days (DHL). Ordered 4 batches with different color/size. They look good at first view. The PCB quality seems comparable to the boards from seeedstudio.

I recently ordered my PCB from OSHPARK (http://oshpark.com). It was 1.25 inch x 1.25 inch double-sided. It cost me US $7.80 for 3 units including shipping, making each PCB cost US $2.60. I ordered on 2nd July 2013, expected to get it back by this weekend. Will keep you posted.

Since this was prototype I am OK with the price. However, once my design is proven I need to be able to get the cost under $1.00 so that I can go for large quantities (50-100).

I am researching options, however, any input are appreciated.

1.25" = 31.75mm.
itead will do 50mmx50mm in 50-lots for $45
http://imall.iteadstudio.com/open-pcb/small-batches-pcb/im120418013.html?options=cart
with $30 for next 50, $25 for each 50 after that.

Shipping likely dependent on weight, via DHL I think for the larger weights. (vs USPS Registered airmail). Go thru the order process to confirm.

Thanks CrossRoads,
I did receive my PCB's last week, yet to get to soldering them. They look great. I will put a pic soon.
Just the problem that edges are not smooth. Probably due to de-paneling at their site I guess.
I need edges to be exact 31.75mm so that it fits behind 32mmx32mm LED matrix.  Now they are coming out a little bit smiley-sad
I am not equipped for cutting edges of PCB, especially as tracks are very close to edges.
Any ideas?

Thanks.

Elecrow can support adding V-groove in one panel for same copies.
Here is a tutorial for how to panelize boards with CAM350.

Hope you find it useful!

suggestion for Elecrow-

offer more board sizes..

your current board sizes mirror iTead/iMalls offerings...

(which I like and usually do use iTead for everything)..

however.. recently.. they were NOT the best choice.. based on the size options they offered for PCB's..



iTead:
5cm x 5cm
5cm x 10cm
10cm x 10cm
Larger than 10cm x 10cm

**bonus to flexible printed circuit options being available


Elecrow:
5cm x 5cm
10cm x 10cm
Larger than 10cm x 10cm

**bonus to FREE colored pcb's


SEEED:

5cm x 5cm
5cm x 10cm
5cm x 15cm
5cm x 20cm

10cm x 10cm
10cm x 15cm
10cm x 20cm

20cm x 20cm

**Bonus to multiple size/dimension offerings, NOT just square sized, but rectangle sized too for fair pricing and not over charging for not being 'square'



@Elecrow-

adding these other sizes/dimensions options will help get more customers... (I would have used ya over SEEED if the sizes were available this time) smiley

CAM350 is a gerber viewer software. it can be used to check whether the PCB designed ok or not.

 Elecrow also provide the following selections.
5cm x 5cm           
5cm x 10cm         
5cm x 15cm         
5cm x 20cm

10cm x 10cm       
10cm x 15cm           
10cm x 20cm

20cm x 20cm
And there is also 5pcs or 10 pcs for your choice.
You can also add V-groove to separate same sub-boards in one PCB panel.
Of course the color is free for sample PCB.
I like their 4 layer PCB service specially. it need only $23.9 for 5X5 cm max board.
it's a great team to provide such great service.

Elecrow have just announced a special offer for 10 x 100mm x 100mm 2 sided boards @ $15.90 + shipping, FOR GREEN ONLY.

As long as you can live with green solder mask then this is a great offer. Usual price (for any colour) is $23.90.

They also seem to have a lot more options on the web site too.
