6mm looks to be a good fit for Cat5.. for 6 I'd prolly opt for the 9mm.

It might shrink enough.. if not it would at least be too small to slip off the connector end of the cable.

Actually, for Cat5e/6, you want the 19mm...  18057 or 18058.  It shrinks 3x.
See attached.

For shrink sleeves, I put them on before termination, then shrink them after termination.
I don't think any of the shrink tube labels are meant to go on after the plugs.

I typically use wrap-around self-laminating labels on network cables, but I have a Brady printer.

I don't know which Dymo you have, but you can write directly on the Rhino 1734864 labels with e.g. an Ultra Fine Point Sharpie.

I use a heat gun for shrink tube... I don't think a blow dryer will get quite hot enough. I've heard of people using the small hand-size torches, but the risk of melting the tubing with those seems high to me.
Bosch and Master Appliance make heavy duty models, but I know a guy that bought one just like this 1500W Heat Gun for his engine repair shop and it's worked fine on occasional wiring repairs for a couple years now.

An attachment like thisHeat Gun Tubing Adaptermakes it easier to apply heat all the way around the shrink tubing with minimum movement and less 'overspray' of the heated air onto surroundings... the latter is a serious consideration for heat guns, because they can get hot enough to set wood-based products on fire.
