I carry around a lot of small expensive/annoying-to-replace objects, like my phone, tablet, battery packs, earbuds, eyeglasses and wallet. I'd love your help in figuring out how to label them all neatly, permanently and unobtrusively. Difficulty level: I am absurdly fussy and precise, including about aesthetics.
I like my labelmaker
but it doesn't give me as much flexibility as I'd like WRT font, colour, size, etc., and the labels aren't very durable: they eventually peel or curl. A year ago I ordered personalized metal asset tags
for my electronic devices: they're a step up from the labelmaker, but I'd still like something better.
I am searching for the holy grail: a labeling mechanism that gives me a lot of control over aesthetics (font, colour, shine level, etc.), that is durable, and that works for teeny things like my eyeglass arms. I'm not interested in tracking services like Boomerang
and I already use things like FindMyPhone -- for the purposes of this question, I just want to put contact information on my physical stuff.
All recommendations are helpful. I'm especially interested in hearing about good sources for high-quality metal tags, and I'd also be keen to learn more about the pros and cons of laser engraving. Thanks.
