print your circuit in a Photo paper using Leser Printer, If you have an inkjet printer, print the circuit on a simple paper and go to Xerox center and xerox it on photo paper.

Step 4: Prepare Your Copper Clad Board

Take a copper clad board and mark it as per circuit diagram and also cut it using cutting tool...

and

Scratch the copper side with a blade to remove copper sulphate.

Step 5: Toner Transfer

Put the printed circuit on copper clad board and heat it for 5-10min using Electric Iron.

Then immerse it in a fresh water, wait for 5min and the remove the paper slowly.

and also put a white tape on the oposite side of the board.

Step 6: Make the Solution

Make a solution by mixing water and ferric chloride.

************Ferric chloride is harmful for tissue.

Step 7: Eatching

Immerse the board in this solution and Shake it, to etch the extra copper layer.

next use nail polish remover to remove the toner from the PCB.

Step 8: Drilling

Fix the printed board on a wood with tape nad then drill it..

Now the PCB is ready....
