Hi rywatkin,

We always use dymo labellers as they can be used for lots of different things, have a look here at the range they provide:

If you intend to have a static system where you can predict any future expansion, you can have a set of decals made up by a local graphic shop. We have high visibility labels made up with white lettering on a gray background.

Advantages:
- If your shop uses the right material, it peels off without residue and can be moved (ours do)
- Sizing can be customized
- Better visibility than a label maker produced label

Disadvantages:
- Cost, but, not so much as you'd think. We had 200 labels made up with different text for $70. A good label maker and your first couple of refills will cost you at least the same.
- No "on the fly" created labels, back to the shop
