Go nuts :)

FWIW, I do 99% of my boards through Elecrow, after using Seeed before that for a couple years. Issues are rare, but they've always made it right ASAP, including remaking boards for free if there's an error. I recommend them very highly.

My personal favourite is JLCPCB.

Pros: pretty nice quality
Cons: they incorporate their ID into your pcb design as a silk screen and there is nothing you can do about it (except than hide it behind some component or place it on a piece, separated by vcut/milling from the rest of your design).

I agree, I use JLCPCB a lot at the moment, but your comment on cons is incorrect in my case. There are no markings on any of my orders, they only have what I put on the silks.

Pros- Very good price, amazingly quick delivery from order date to UK - great quality and now no price difference for board colours.
It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !

No silicon heaven ? preposterous ! Where would all the calculators go ?

Maybe you should take a closer look at yours.
Their marking is mandatory since they automatically sort and check them. I've had a lot of pcbs from jlc and all had markings on them.

Considering the section this thread is in I really love the typo in the thread title. I was more or less hoping for a parody thread :applause:
Sorry. Plain out of planes.
