Labels for switches?

Hi all, I want to label up some switches, isolators, gauges etc on my console (gel coat/fibreglass)
Any suggestions for a type of label or sticker that will last?
I have a dymo label printer with plastic tape but the glue is crap and the print fades
Custom engraved plastic panels are probably out of my price range...

Thanks

Commercial vinyl shops can help you out.

For small projects, it is still a little pricey, but they usually offer the best solution.

For my SCUBA tanks, my MOD markings (70, OXYGEN 20), I did a white background with black lettering. Commercial vinyl sticks like crazy...I've had zero peeling. For my AL40 that I switched from a "70" to "OXYGEN 20", it actually peeled some of the paint off when I removed the vinyl...brand new tank that was only a few months old!

Most Chandlers do packs of generic stickers to cover all of the standard functions.
