In a cheap fashion, I've found that the metal foil duct tape and a
sharpie make good permanent-ish labels for the storage totes that I've
been using to organize seldom-used tools, car parts, etc.
If you want something more professional-looking, P-Touch is pretty much
what all electricians are using these days to tag wires, label
equipment, etc. when there's no requirement for engraved Micarta labels.
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
I have to make labels for just about every job and I have several
expensive wiz bang label makers for making labels but the machine
I use the most is the little P-Touch I picked up out of a discount
bin at a big box store for $14.00. I just bought a replacement tape
cartridge at Office Depot and it cost $12.00. The labels are quite
versatile and I use them to label phone/data jacks, wires, patch panels
and equipment. Brother PT-70 is sold at Walmart. ^_^
For those bins, I use card stock (3 x 5 note cards work fine for the
small bins) cut to the appropriate size. I like the slip-in labels, so I
can re-label at will without the mess of stick-on or write-on labeling.
