I wouldn't necessarily say cheaper.  Remember, there is more than the cost
of materials involved, there is also your labor and time.
A good rule of thumb is to base your time on your regular salary rate.  So
if you made $30.00 an hour in your daytime job and this
took you 2 hours, then you already have $60.00 in cost.

$65.00 for a 10x14" board or whatever Jim said does seem like a very good
deal indeed.


If you want to go even cheaper, it is possible to use the toner transfer
method to get your artwork transferred to a baord.. They beauty of this
system is that you only need some semi-glossy paper, a laser printer, and
an old iron..
