Here are my next round of questions.

1. Where do you get named blueprints from? I have gone to 2 different regions and all I see on the market is the basic generic ones like "Afterburner I".

2. Is there anything a newb can make that sells for more than the cost of the materials? I checked about 30 different blueprints (all basic models since thats all I can find on the market) and the lowest selling price is always less than the cost of just selling the minerals.

As always, thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.

You cant buy named item blueprints, named items only come from killing NPC's and taking them from their jet cans.

Some items really dont make you much money if you build and sell them, this is also true.

Im a pirate, not a manufacturer. So I cant give you many tips hehe.

It is true that you cannot buy named item blueprints (though some COSMOS missions give special blueprint copies, they're COSMOS-only items).

Basic items aren't going to be all that popular... Check the Item Database to find out what corporations sell the blueprint you want to buy, and check there. Also, the Production Efficiency skill will help you big time for saving on mineral costs.

At the U.Caille station I spent most of the last week based near, the materials+production facility cost of my preferred small hybrid ammo is half of the market price for runs of 5000 or more. Since the blueprints are under 50kISK, you can pay them back fairly quickly and be making profit, and if mining is boring, you can get all the minerals you need from the nearby drone deadspace complexes (if somebody else isn't camping them). With materials research or production efficiency, the profit would be even better. Not a huge amount of profit, but it doesn't take much capital to get started either.

If I was intending to stay in the area, I'd be exploiting that niche all I could (and figuring out more about the market size - I was buying more than 2000 rounds per day, but don't have a good idea of who else was buying or what other ammo types were in demand.)

Yup, ammo in mission runner systems is always in demand, and has a very low cost of entry. The market data screen should tell you what's moving in large volumes. Then scatter some sell orders around to locate demand.
