dont forget that you can also make a silk screen type layer simply by ironing on a sil screen design after etching...

u know it's much easier to download FreePCB and use http://www.apcircuits.com/ . they're the cheapest and easiest place i found to use . they do the drilling and hole tinning and everything . a decent sized board can cost $10-$15 canadian dollars . and they have a next day shipping .   :)

A lot of detail on this (and sending the boards out to be made). Uses Eagle which is a pretty good package. I used to make my own but now I just send them off.
