If you are new to PCB designing and assembling like me, the Free Assembly for 5 PCBs offer from Seeed Studio would be the best and cheapest option to bring your ideas about PCB designing to life. They offer each user to assembly PCBs up to 5 components(pieces) but do not forget one offer per customer. The only thing you need to do to get this offer is to upload your PCB design and purchase your components up to 5 pieces, which you want to implement on your PCB. In other words, you merely pay for components and then benefit the free assembly offer – PCBA. And, most importantly, there is no shipping or setup cost. Also, you can choose among various manufacturing specifications(e.g., thickness, layers, colors, dimensions) to specialize your PCBs if you want to but there will be an extra charge.
For my not soon but upcoming electronics projects, I will be working with PCBs and therefore use this service to create my PCB designs as a beginner; when I get my first PCB via the Free Assembly for 5 PCBs offer from Seeed Studio, I will share a more detailed review about the offer, PCB manufacturing files in Gerber format, and the components I will purchase for my design as a beginner's guide.
To get more information about the offer, try PCB assembly.
They offer more than the Free Assembly for 5 PCBs to makers and engineers: if you want to get sponsored for your further projects, I recommend you take a look at the Seeed Studio Fusion Sponsorship Program here.
I hope that it will help you to start your first PCB project without thinking about PCBA cost.
