How well experienced are you with manual soldering and what kind of equipment and soldering wire are you using? 550 1"x1" PCBs with 9 components each aren't that many. If you are having trouble, you might want to try no-clean flux. Alternatively, A/MA flux could also be used but would require the PCBs to be washed with appropriate solvent after soldering. It would ease the manual soldering process if you go that route.
I thought so too, but took me entire day to finish a batch of 25 , I have a 63/37 mechanics , all purpose solder paste and RMA-223 amtech flux (generic) chinese bga rework stuff, IPA (isopropyl alcohol) as a solvent.

I can try making one for you, no problem.
I will need a Gerber file of PASTE layer or the SOLDER MASK layer to proceed further.
When I have to do small sized PCB assembly, I always make a panel of many PCBs. This makes life very easy in SMT assembly.
In all honesty i would hate to be a bother , your suggestions and expertise is very much appreciated.
I got a few quotes in for a SS stencil from aliexpress not nearly as expensive as i had thought.
$16.00 , and $7.00 shipping.
30*30mm SS Stencil , without frame. 1:1:2 aspect.
What stencil thickness do you recommend and percentage , and they asked if i needed a frame.. not sure if I do..
P.S: Just realized i mentioned incorrectly , the Mosfet is LFPAK56 and not 33. There is a 8-pin MCU in a SOP-8 package and rest of the components are 0805.
