Etching and Soldering your PCB sounds difficult to do if you come to think of it. But with a little help from experienced people around and some videos on YouTube I successfully came through this step with minimal effort.
First off when buying a glossy paper I would recommend a single sided one, because the double-sided glossy paper smells really bad during ironing. I think it is also bad for your health if you inhaled that burnt plastic stuff so opt to buy the single-sided one.
After your design has been printed on a glossy paper cut the excess paper and place it face-down on the PCB with the ink touching the copper plate. I recommend ironing on wood with a layer of newspaper and bond paper. Also make sure that the iron is at MAX before ironing it.
Starting at one side, slowly but surely iron the paper towards the other side. If you feel that the paper stuck through the copper plate push the iron at the middle and hold it for about 5 seconds.
