Please recommend a solder ready board for projects

I tried searching the forums for this but there are so many threads that have the words solder and board in them, I couldn't read through them all.

I'm ready to move my project off of the solder-less breadboard and solder it permanently in place. Can you recommend a small ready to solder board with eyelets already in it? Preferably available from sellers in the U.S.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I like the Velleman ECS 1/2 "island of holes" card. 80x100mm, very good quality. Available online from many places.

If you don't need a lot of solder points then can I suggest using an over-length socket? ]:D

Do you need for it to plug into an Arduino board, the way an off-the-shelf shield would? If so, there are many "proto-shield" products around, for example from Adafruit or Sparkfun.

Or do you want to recreate the Uno and your added parts?
For example, here is the equivalent of a Promini using a DIP (lower left corner), with my added parts. Runs from external 5V source, so no regulator used.

Thank you for the feedback gentlemen. CrossRoads, what a cool board! Thanks for the pic.

I'm a new user of the Arduino Uno (R3). I purchased an Inventors Kit from SparkFun a couple of weeks ago and have had a lot of fun learning. I also purchased an Arduino Ethernet Shield about a week ago to get my Uno onto the network. The Ethernet Shield's microSD card made for a nice bonus.

I ended up building a really simple temperature taking circuit, I log the readings to the SD card along with a time-stamp, and make the readings retrievable via http calls to the "Server." There are also a few flashing LEDs to indicate various activities.

The project is truly nothing special, but I put a lot of work into the coding (all of it re-usable for future projects) and decided to solder up the circuit should I want to run it again in the future. It's like a first pet :)

So I'm not looking to turn the circuit into a shield. I just wanted an easy to solder on board to make it permanent.

Again, thank you for the suggestions and ideas.

If you want to transfer from breadboard to stripboard and don't want to re-design the circuit then this company does stripboard with breadboard layouts http://www.busboard.us/#BreadBoards Vero is another good source of prototyping products http://www.verodirect.com/

Thanks Riva. These look perfect for my project and very easy for a novice to work with.
