 This post is here to record the turn around time and prices I paid for PCB prototypes from OshPark.

Healthy pH Shield Dev-Rev1

Gerbers sent out on Thursday PM.  I received them 15 days later at a cost of $28.50.

3 boards at $28.50 per batch of three. $28.50
Sub total $28.50

United States: Free Shipping $0.00
TOTAL (paid) $28.50

 

Healthy pH Shield Dev-Rev2

I sent the Gerbers in on a Monday in the afternoon.  I wanted to try out the Super Swift Service as well as some for shipping to see what the time difference is.

3 boards at $28.50 per batch of three. $28.50
Super Swift Service $89.00
Sub total $117.50

USPS – Priority Mail $5.00
TOTAL (paid) $122.50

It took 2 days for shipping. I received the boards 9 days later on Wednesday.

According to the great folks at OshPark, panels go out each day at 11AM. If I had been able to submit the Gerbers prior to 11AM Monday, there is a good chance I would have received the boards two days earlier. Perhaps if I paid for overnight shipping I would receive the PCBs on Saturday – a total of 6 day turnaround.

Healthy EC Shield Dev-Rev1

I sent gerbers out on a Tuesday AM.  

3 boards at $28.50 per batch of three. $28.50
Sub total $28.50

USPS – Free Shipping $0.00
TOTAL (paid) $28.50

I got a notice from OshPark of shipment 8 days later.  The boards arrived 10 days after I sent the gerbers.

Healthy pH Shield Dev-Rev3

Gerbers were sent in on a Thursday afternoon.

3 boards at $28.50 per batch of three. $28.50
Sub total $28.50

USPS – Free Shipping $0.00
TOTAL (paid) $28.50

The board arrived 11 days after I sent the Gerbers.

I was excited to see an email that the board was back 8 days later on Friday. I thought – ok, is there a way to ship the boards for overnight delivery? I was interested in going so far as getting a Task Rabbit person to pick up the boards and go to a post office/UPS/Fed Ex location. Since there seems to be a lag between OshPark putting a shipping label onto the package, the pickup by the post office, and then delivery to Portland. I settled for OshPark’s Express Shipping for an additional $20. Alas – sadly, the package arrived on Monday and not Saturday. I’m still looking for ways to minimize shipping – other than making the 4 hour drive down and another 4 hour drive back. I don’t think I can convince my high school junior to change schools…
