I'd forget it, development costs are very high.

A French company called CIF used to sell a photoresist coated flex PCB material for DIY flex circuits, but I can't find it on their website & Farnell no longer stock it, altough they do still list uncoated flex : http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/search/browse.jsp?N=411+1000161&Ntk=gensearch_001&Ntt=cif+flex&Ntx=

Mega do still list photoresist flex - not sure if this is the CIF product or something different : http://www.megauk.com/pcb_laminates.php

As far as I am aware, a lot of the 1-off cost of flex is the tooling of the die for cutting to shape ( a few hundred GBP last time I asked) - if you are prepared to cut it manually with knife/scissors, it may be more affordable - best bet would be to ask a PCB company that does flex.

No way. Too expensive. Ain't-a-gonna-happen.

Go electric!
