PCB (comments, signs, ..etc??)

I'm building my own PCB's so I came up to build PCB with Dry Film..etc but I always get only a clear PCB no comments, no values, nothing (Pic. nr.1), at this point I had an idea to use White Dry film to put above the 1st layer of film and put values on resistors/components..etc (Pic. nr.2) Is that the right way? or there is another way to do it easy, fast and cheap? I tried to search on google the name and how they do it but couldn't find the right phrase, so i came up with my idea.

Remember to reverse it ;) I have used iron on silk screen layers but, once the board is made the markings are not needed. Why not print the silk screen on paper and keep that handy if ever needed.

OR

Get the board (with all layers) made in China, costs are inexpensive.

I know about reversing :D took me a while to understand the reverse and not reverse of the negative and positive films and pcb.

A board from china is a good idea but for a single board it's expensive and i risk my pcb to be copyrighted cause I build official PCB's that will be patented.

I want a nice made PCB as soldered and as kit so people will be able to understand easy and have a nice looking pcb, top, bottom, values and easy to read/understand.

Do you know any other way?

Stickers? Sounds a nice idea probably the quality is good as well and life time but expensive, 90$ for a single kit. :/

Found the name (Silkscreen or Overlay) here: (of curse from your above website as well) http://www.pcb.electrosoft-engineering.com/04-articles-custom-system-design-and-pcb/01-printed-circuit-board-concepts/printed-circuit-board-pcb-concepts.html

For a one time PCB this looks reasonable:

My problem is that my Negative dry film is dark color so after finishing the circuit and covering a layer as protection from rusting and bridges the layer is so dark (dark violet) that even if i put the layer of black toner on the PCB I will have a really hard time to read.

Life is tough ;)

Frankly, I'd question whether this is worth the effort considering the current prices of professionally fabbed PCBs, which will make beautiful PCBs with great silk screening for no extra charge.... Silk screen is sort of a luxury/vanity feature.

I only know a few people who own businesses that make millions of $$$ a year and they all send out the PCB to a board house.

If you are concerned about copyright, just use a board house in your own country. do not let it leave your country.

if your board is so popular, do not loose sleep over the simple fact that it will be stolen and sold on e-bay for $1. if you sell at a fair price, the market will not go to cheap boards. if you try to over price, you will create the market for clones.

even iPhone is over priced and there is a lot of iPhone copies but people don't buy copies but original phones (im a android fun). My point is to build my project as a kit at cheaper price so people could buy and build themselfs for the experience, fun, joy ..etc I know many people that like to buy kits and solder the components because it's cheaper and fun instead buying (ready to go) ones.
