Jonathan, this is all great advice wish I had that starting out. John B's comment on H&C drawing a crowd is spot on, I do H&C at national muzzle loading rendezvous events.The first time I had not even thought of that ,camps were scattered for a mile up and down the valley in the 3 days I was working nearly everyone there came to see what the tapping was. It took 3 days to do what would have taken 2 hours in the shop because of all the visitors but it was well worth it.
Good luck,Leland

Practice, practice, practice. Watch all the videos and read all that you can. Be a sponge for engraving knowledge.

My suggestion: Follow the advice of the people who have responded above.
My second suggestion: Key fobs. They're small, very inexpensive, and with enough practice can be easy jobs that advertise themselves. Monograms are very simple and easy to lay out once you get the hang of it.

Best of luck!
