I will second http://dorkbotpdx.org/wiki/pcb_order
when you only need a few copies.
I am waiting on an order from Seeedstudio placed on September 27. They shipped the boards October 7th. (Oct 1 - Oct 5 was a national holiday) Then shipping to the US takes about 10-30 days.
Both places have their purpose. Seeedstudio/iTeadstudio are useful when you need 10 or more boards. The dorkbotpdx group order is great for prototyping or when you need 3 boards or less. Laen who does the group order is very helpful and friendly. The boards come back looking great.
