How to Start

  1. Review the PCB Services Guidelines >>
  2. Prepare your design using your preferred electronics design software. Learn to Use Electronics Design Software >>
  3. Create a copper pour on the top and bottom layers of your design. This is good practice and helps us make your PCBs faster.
  4. Download the PCB Services CAM File >>
  5. Run a Design Rule Check (DRC) using the PCB Services CAM File.
  6. Export Gerber Files for the top copper layer, bottom copper layer, drill holes, and board outline of your PCB. These are the files that will be run on the machine. Review the PCB Services Guidelines >>
  7. Review your Gerber Files to ensure each file is properly named and appears correct and not mirrored. Review Your Gerber Files Online >>
  8. Multiply the bounding area of your design by the service pricing to calculate the cost of a single PCB. Multiply that cost by the quantity for the total order cost. PCB Services Pricing >>
  9. Order your PCBs. Please order each PCB separately. You will receive an email confirmation when we receive your order. PCB Services Order Form >>
  10. Wait for an email notification that your PCBs are ready. The expected turnaround time for one order is 3 to 5 business days.
  11. Come to Sears think[box] within 30 days of receiving the email notification to pick up and pay for your PCBs.


PCBs are produced using 1 ounce copper-clad FR4 that is single or double sided and nominally 1/16 inches (1.6 millimeters) thick.
