Step 1: buy iron on transfers
Step 2: Print board layout onto transfers with a laser printer
Step 3: Clean an unetched pcb with fine sandpaper and acetone
Step 4: Iron transfer onto clean pcb using high heat
Step 5: Remove paper backing with water and patience. (A nylon dremel brush at low speed helps)
Step 6: Fix any broken traces with a sharpie
Step 7: Etch in ferric chloride
Step 8: Clean any hand-drawn traces with a dremel and X-acto knife
Step 9: Drill

Bam! Custom PCB with <$20 of supplies.

i thought a circuit board might be something similar to bullitin boards, and you`d make one online and print it. lol, i`m pretty dumb!!!!

I remember, several years ago, hearing about technology like this to be used in disposable cell phones, Instead of buying phone cards you`d buy a phone. Guess thats kinda obsolete now. When I read about it though the point seemed to be that it was very efficient and cost effective. They didn`t really make that point here, But I guess rolling your PSP up in a tube is neat too.
