Name tags are done on both sides and stapled to a stake.
I have the metal markers (rose) for the garden and the marking that stays best is a pencil. Graphite doesn't wash off. I don't find these markers suitable for seedlings in the earlier stages and I am using the blinds this year. They are quite portable and I don't feel bad if I throw one away. The rose markers are too expensive to use in most of the hybridizing situations. Although I've done so in the past.
The tags I posted are for marking crosses in the spring. They spend 3 months in the field and the rest of the year in a zip lock bag in storage. Except for the stray fall cross. I even ran the old ones through the laundry when needed. And sometimes by accident when one stuck in a pocket!
