I went to that one site (don't remember the name) that can give you an estimate for designing your board game, and I chose the option 1-10 prototypes, filled in all of my information, and then I got an e-mail. The e-mail stated it would cost about $2,500 to produce the prototypes!!!

Chances are the cost contained a LARGE setup fee. Most companies require a setup fee(which is a 1-2k) in price. This fee handles the standard printing industry items for plates, proofs, component creation, machine setup, pay for personal to run the job, etc.

If you want to create prototypes, it is cheaper for you to do it on your own. The companies out and about are not for the little man. Once you have confidence in producing larger quantities(1000+), their services are very useful.
