I've located an excellent-- though expensive-- product for making garden labels that are easy and waterproof, and it can be used also for signs and important messages on bulletin boards. It's never-tear paper, and xerox makes one. I wasn't able to find it locally in 8.5 x 11 form (I've seen it in small bound field notebooks), but got it directly from Xerox-- $50US + shipping for 100 sheets. Search for "never tear" on the xerox web site. If you have a printer with waterproof ink (I'm still experimenting-- my Epson C80 Inkjet supposedly is archival & waterproof) you can print right onto the paper, which is nice because you can print photos, symbols, etc.
In my parts I use a regular corkboard which lasts a while, though not permanently. Also, in one location we use plywood painted with "chalk-board paint" (comes in spray or liquid form) and just use chalk to communicate-- simply, easy, cheap, though not permanent.
Hope this helps...
