I've used a method for two years now that is great for both maintaining a record of accessions and also printing highly legible labels which are permament and contain a lot of information. I enter my accessions into a column of an Excel sheet then use mail merge within Word to create labels. Save your Excel data, open Word and select mail merge. Choose your label template sheet - I use Avery transparent return address labels, 80 per sheet, for standard 5" or 8" plastic labels. For larger aluminum lables I use a bigger Avery label. Select the data you want to merge then complete the merge and format the labels as you need to get them to fit all the information. Generally Arial at 8, 9 or 10 point works best. Print them on a laser printer - essential because it is the carbon toner that bonds with the label that is responsible for the lack of fading (same as the Brother method). You don't have to do a full sheet each time - the sheets happily go through the printer at least 3 times. Stick the printed labels on your label of choice and put them in the ground/pots. Before doing a lot I iteratively microwaved, dishwashed, froze and thawed the labels a number of times and the adhesive never deteriorated. After a couple of years in the garden not a single label has peeled or faded. You don't even have to type a lot of the information into the Excel sheet if it is electronically availbe lesewhere, e.g. when you order or on a web site. The only marker I use that is guaranteed not to fade and fine enough for plant labels is the DecoColor black paint pen. J.
