Is anybody out there doing their own custom PCB layout and then sending the gerber files out for fabrication?

Where is a good place to get your one-off hobby project PCBs fabricated for a decent price?

What kind of experience have you had with the places where they do the fabrication? is it expensive?
With lots of practice, you can make it look easy.

When I pass through Havelock I notice a place there which does something like that. I have never stopped but find it interesting such service exists out in the middle of nowhere. I have also heard there are(were?) some fabricators in the Kitchener/Waterloo area as well.

I recently ordered some boards from

Three boards that were 0.94x2.9 inches two layer with solder masks and component masks ended up being $13.60 including shipping.
