I agree with mpilchfamily, it's and simple, get a fine tip sharpie and a ruler and go at it. If you make a mistake just wipe it off. I have also used rub on transfers that you could get at radio shack but I searched and could not find them listed on the website.
I tip I picked up some time ago was to (of course while wearing gloves) use a sponge and wipe the etchant lightly on the board over a plastic container.

Take a piece of copper clad and a permanent marker and you can draw out your own circuit on the board and etch it. While it may be a crude method it works and it's cheap.

UV is definitely the best method.
