I will often use a sharpie and write right on the pot. (On some black pots I’ll use a silver sharpie.) This works great for me with small pots of seed I’m growing as use plastic wrap secured with a rubber band over my arisaema seeds to keep humidity high when germinating. The labels are always too big for the small pots. 
My garden looks ghastly with labels all winter. They heave, the squirrels and birds move them around as well. Let’s not talk about the wind...

I write the plant names, etc. at the top and again at the very bottom, then shove the labels into the pots as far as they'll go or in tall pots, level with the top edge.  I've done this for years because I have help that gets pretty rambunctious, currently an Australian Cattle dog named Andy.  While he stays on the walkways or jumps three flats in a single bound, he is forever brushing against flats and breaking off the top half of the label, which may or may not disappear.  I have been saved from total confusion so many times with this method!

In this climate, they seem to last as readable for on average 3 years which is not bad for a temporary label.  Birds and cats are the other label pullers but little enough of that, so I'll consider myself lucky compared to all your horror stories!
