Best price for PCB? Answered

  I am looking to make one PCB with dimensions 7"x7". I know that this is rather large, but was wondering if anyone knew the cheapest place to have this made as long it is decent quality? Time is not an important factor. It will probably be 2 layers, 4 at most. I know about Sparkfun's BatchPCB service. Thanks for your help.

ITead is great for small boards, but the prices might inflate for larger boards (IDK what price range BatchPCB is for that size so I cannot compare)

A 7.8x7.8" board would cost you some $60+ at itead for 5pcs

Ive used them before for small boards, its pretty good quality for the price, but it took 3 weeks to get here

Also dorkbot pdx has a service (OHS park), but its rather expensive to that large of a board

PCBs manufactured overseas tend to be much cheaper. Try Futurlec.
