minimizing cost

Postby astro13 » Wed Dec 11, 2013 12:30 pm


I need 48 small identical 1.6''x1.2'' boards to be made. I could order them as 48 individual boards or I could put 8 in a larger board and order 6 of them, etc. How do I minimize the total cost?
In general, is it better to order many small boards or fewer but larger ones. There may be minimum in cost. Any advice?

As long as you are able to cut the boards apart yourself you can save money by creating an array of boards yourself. If you are unable to create your own array or you can't cut the boards apart yourself you are better off ordering individual boards or going through our Full Feature service and ordering the boards in a panel. Full Feature is best for high quantity orders that can have an extended lead-time.
