New Release PCB123 V5.4

We have released a new version of PCB123 - Version 5.4.

Version 5.4 vastly expands users' options for manufacture by adding a direct order channel to Sunstone's PCBpro services.

Layer Count


I am new to PCB Manufacturing and have already gotten confused by the process. When the term "2 layer board" comes up, does this mean that there are a TOTAL of 2 layers (including signal, legend/overlay, solder, etc...) or that there are 2 SIGNAL layers (ones with copper on them, with overlay, solder, etc. layers omitted)?
The quoting page lead me to believe that 2 layer implied a board with 2 signal layers since ...

minimizing cost


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?

Silkscreen, Removing Ink from PCB? Silkscreen, Removing Ink from PCB?

Is it possible to remove printed silkscreen from the pcb without abrasion? Is there a chemical that can dissolve it? This would be removing a letter or two, maybe a polarity symbol or marking. This would NOT be to remove entire fields.
