How many letters are generally placed on monogrammed items?

You can't really put a count on it.  
You can put as much as you want or have room for.  It can be as limited as a standard two or three letter initial, like you'd normally see on toweling or bathrobes, or it can be as personalized as you would like using numerous letters.  It mostly depends on where you're wanting to place the monogram and how much room there is on the item.
