Labels for the controllers - what do u do?

What do people do to label each of the faders on the controllers? Im thinking it would be good to somehow ‘write’ a label on the controller with a white pencil of some type? Does anyone have any tips on this or other, better options for labeling controls that can easily be removed later when changing the contollers functions?

Something like console tape perhaps?

We used white colored UNI Posca pens in the past to write directly on the aluminium frontpanel.
They work flawlessly and the writing should come off completely with mild organic solvents one usually has access to at home.

You can see it in action in this video here:
