Try Macore...they have distributors in your area and have product that both
utilizes the pencil and have some wide tops to add some detailed notes.  As I
recall, you can't order directly.  Eventually, I've found they all break down
here but maybe they'll last longer in your climate.  Hope this helps,

Subject: [pbs] Labels for seed pots

I'm about down to the last of my labels and seeds are starting to arrive, elach 
packet of which will need a label in the seed pot. Can anyone recommend a 
reliable source of 4" plastic labels with a matte finish that takes pencil well?

A quick attempt to find such with Google leads to any number of suspects, but 
no one says "pencil works with these." One place extolled how smooth their 
labels are, which in my experience is precisely what you don't want if using 

Why pencil? Because it never fades, unlike every felt-tipped marker I've ever 

If the labels you recommend don't go brittle and break when exposed to sunlight 
(at least, if they don't do so too soon!), I will be your friend forever. This 
may be an alarming prospect for some of you, so if you prefer, I will be your 
un-friend forever.
