For low quantity or prototype boards, and especially smaller boards,
I don't think you can possibly beat DorkbotPDX (http://pcb.laen.org).
For $5.00/sq in you get three copies of your board--ANY SIZE, no
minimum, no setup fee, and U.S. shipping included.  That's only
$1.67/sq in total, and you get solder mask and silk screen both sides,
minimum 6 mil/6 mil trace/space and 13 mil drill size.
