It is recommended, the printer should be Laser printer. If you don't have Laser printer don't worry, I have a solution. First print out the circuit diagram on a normal paper in 100% size. Now make a photo copy of the diagram with glossy paper  by photostat machine. Because both Laser printer and Photostat machine have same type of ink. 


Note : We are getting the circuit diagram on a glossy paper.



After printing the circuit will  look like that :

Keep it for future and look at step 2.


Step 2:

Buy a copper board and cut it with required dimension. If you are in Bangladesh , you can visit http://toolsbd.com to collect necessary parts. A little rubbing is required to make clean the copper board . Look at the picture :

Now using  Masking Tape, add  PCB Diagram with  Copper Board carefully . 
 
This picture of masking is collected from techtunes.com.bd .Some how i missed this step to capture
 We need to provide heat on this and we should use an Iron. Be careful, you don't need to provide very high temperature . At first keep it on copper board so that heat can spread. After 2or3 min, start ironing  smoothly. Keep it in mind that rough ironing will damage the copper board

Step 3:

Bring  a pot with water and provide some Ferric Chloride on that . Be careful you should provide
Ferric Chloride on water . Don't watering on Ferric Chloride . Now sink the copper board and keep moving the water pot slowly for 20 min . You will see that copper will be being vanished .

Now, we need to drill the board. If you have drill machine, you can use it. If  you don't have a drill machine, don't worry. I have a solution for you.
 





You can follow my method using drill bit. I didn't buy any drill machine !!!

  8. One of the major concepts in electronics is the printed circuit board or PCB. It’s so fundamental that people often forget to explain what a PCB is. Electronics have come a long way. A journey that started with vacuum tubes and relays got its way into silicon and ICs. It became more prevalent in consumer goods. www.pcbonline.com/blog/CONSIDERATIONS_WHEN_SELECTING_PCB_MATERIALS_FOR_HIGH-FREQUENCY_APPLICATIONS_100.html
