Well using a laser printer you can get the layout's tracks on a transparrency (white solid plastic cut in the shape of A4 Paper used for lecture presentations), then you can cut those tracks and then place it on the copper sheet and move the marker over on the cut portion in order to make visible tracks on the sheet and place the board in Ferric Chloride to remover the useless copper then go for drilling and all.

Best Regards
