First let it be noted I'm a newbie which might be obvious from my questions.
I prototyped my project on my breadboard and I'm ready to complete the project. I'm unlikely to get a printed board as far as I can tell the cost of a printed board plus chips would wind up costing me as much as replacing my Arduino all together. Plus the newer Arduinos seem to be better than the original one I purchased.
For my LCD screen on my prototype, I used breakaway headers for connecting the pins to the breadboard. However the spacing of the breakaway headers do not fit properly to the prototype shield headers. So there in lies my question.
When finalizing projects how do most people make the final connections to the LCD screen?
