Avery clear laser labels (5660) work well if you can get someone or
someplace to print them. Laser toner is carbon and it pretty well imune to
sunlight problems. I have used them for  years. I use good galvanized stakes
from See-Fine but that would not be considered cheap. However the
combination does last well. The labels might stick fine to PVC pipe. That is
a relatively inexpensive stake. The Paw Paw Everlast stakes are relatively
inexpensive at about 25 cents each in quantities of 100.
