I am using Nalgene PolyPaper labels and they are really tough. They will
not tear and the laser print cannot be scratched off. It will come off
with xylene, but not alcohol. They are available through Fisher

We print them using an MS-Access database, but you can also use Word or
Filemaker Pro or any other label making program.

The only problem is that the labels are not put on the sheet in such a
way that you can use those on the outside edge because they are too
close to the edge to be printed on. We waste about 35 out of 80 labels
due to that problem. They are still the best labels for the price I have
found ($25 for 880 labels).

Nalgene labels (Labels, Histology Slide, Nalgene Polypaper, Fisher
Scientific, CAT#13-382-87A,  88 labels per sheet, 10 sheets per pack,
$25/pk. these are designed for the laser printer).
