Try a black grease pencil (China Marker).  They are available at most art supply and office supply stores, and they last much longer than magic markers.  The black will eventually fade (takes several years in New Mexico, probably longer in less sunny climates), but the wax seems to last forever.  Don't get red, the red fades quickly.  White on black or green pots has lasted for as long as 25 years on pots for me (longer than many of the pots!).  I don't know about other colors, haven't tried them.

These tags were made out of the old blinds we've talked about on the list.&nbsp; My old tags were getting brittle and I decided to make a new batch.&nbsp; Hope to make about 150 before I'm done.

I'm not real happy with the paint pen that I got from Gempler's online.&nbsp; There is virtually NO point.&nbsp; It's a bit like marking with a blob of paint!&nbsp; Magic markers are more to my taste but I don't have a lot of patience for remarking them every year.&nbsp;
