Labels – What To Use Outside

Q: I need to know what writing instrument I can use to make my outdoor plant labels. I need something that doesn’t fade.

A: I use a Brother P-Touch label maker and flat metal label holders that have thick wire legs, which I buy online. I’ve found that the tape, lettering and label holders last for several years. I searched in vain for an ink-based marker but could not find one that didn’t fade after a few months in sunshine.
