I am so glad you posted that! I was just thinking the other day how it would be nice to have a cheap pcb manufacturer that did not have exorbitant prices, so quick smd projects would be feasible without a $300 set up fee.dknguyen said:www.batchpcb.com is by far the cheapest (and the PCBs comes with the all the standard trimmings). There is an initial $10 setup fee (shipping already included) for each order and after that it is priced soley by board area (doesn't matter if it's one large PCB or 5 littles ones- if they are the same area they will cost thje same). If you need 5+ identical decent sized boards, it can start to cost more than other places, but for one or two, it absolutely cannot be beat (from what I have found). The PCBs are also lead-free with plated traces.
