Labeling Cables/Wires

Interested in everyone's thoughts on that age old challenge of labeling cables.

I've been reading about self laminating wire wrap labels which seem to be labels you print and stick on the wire and then the rest of the label (sticky clear plastic) wraps around the wire to keep the label affixed. Obvious question is, how well do they hold up ? Sticky things don't always stay stuck.

The more expensive and professional choice seems to be heat shrink tubing that you print on and then shrink it right on to the wire, but I would think that would only work on cables that didn't already have ends on them, cables you are making yourself. I do make cables, but I don't make all of my cables.

How do you label the wires on your boat ?

What are you pretending not to know ?
