    There are online PCB factories that will take a gerber file or KiCAD file and make your boards. Some are very cheap (and Chinese - like PCBWay), and others are a little more expensive (American - like OSHPark) - but generally on the order of 10 bucks for three boards at 1.5" square.

    I've been playing around with KiCAD and I really like it.

    Otherwise, as others say, Amazon is a good source. I have a kit with four sizes of protoboard (the kind with pads at 2.54 mm spacing ); several strips of header pins and sockets; jumpers; and screw terminals. Very cool.

    Some images of boards I've been messing around with on KiCAD, below. These use an Arduino Mini Pro.

    Save the Jameson's for the 75M nets!

    You forgot the most important stuff -
    hasn't shaved in a week
    wearing a tank style, grubby white undershirt with holes in the beer belly
    gravel voice from 45 years of chain smoking 2 packs a day (Everett Dirksen, anyone)
    And thinks that "no kinds, no lids, no space cadets .. .. .." was poetry
