I'm using that type of tape to repair vinyl tablecloths at work.  The tape
begins to peel very quickly when it is dampened daily.

If you could find
something clear at Lowe's or Home Depot in the duct work section that would be
the very best.

I know that you can sometimes get clear shelf paper/
laminating paper.  Actually nowadays you can even get little laminating
envelopes the size of a company ID badge.  That might work some kind of way.

I have been trying
something different for labels. I print out the names on a sheet of paper with
a lazer printer. I cut the names out and apply them to plastic or metal
markers with clear packing tape. I am hoping that because the paper is
completely surrounded/rnclosed by the tape it will last awhile. Has anyone
tried anything like this? it is cheap and I will be happy if it lasts a year
but I hope it will last longer.

I've been using Avery labels 5520 for about six years and place the
labls on Eon Industries metal holders. I print using a laser printer as the
heat from the laser sets the ink into the plastic labels. I also use an Ichida
black paint marker for quick labeling. Both the paint pen and the laser ink
stand very well lasting upwards of four years. The label shown was prepared
mid 2005.

Weather is average, not much snow unless a storm comes up the coast
and runs into a cold front. So far only 1" snow.
