As for the problem of not having a laser printer you could always just go to a local copyshop and laserprint it there. Etching reactant doesn't seem to be very expensive (see http://www.pollin.de/shop/dt/MDU4OTg0OTk-/Werkstatt/Werkstattbedarf/Sonstiges/Aetzset.html
for example). I didn't do this myself yet, but am thinking about getting such a small etching set and doing the copyshoplasering.
Propaganda on the other hand sounds better an better to me, also always played with the thought of ordering a pcb there, but i always feel like i should have something near final to do an oversea-order of 5 pcbs whicht afterwards turn out useless because of design flaws.
