If anyone has a laser printer they could print out there design in reverse and then use a clothes iron to transfer to some copper clad. Etch it and drill it and you've got a custom pcb. I've made tons of tiny intricate buffer circuits for amplifiers this way with very small traces. Works great if you just need one or two boards.

Even easier then the clothes iron is a laminator. Some modes require very little modification to accept a pcb. They provide much better heat and pressure distribution.
