    Hey there,

    I wonder if anyone else has this problem. I work at a university where
    students check out video equipment all the time. We use a lot of Porta
    Brace cases, and I need to mark them really clearly with certain
    information. But I've yet to find a paint pen I really like and that
    won't fade on me.

    Any tips about a specific make/model of writing instrument that you
    use for this would be really helpful. I actually wrote in to
    PortaBRace and asked this same question - never heard back from the
    bastards. Doesn't have to be portabrace, of course, anything that's
    good for writing on cordura...

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Try Sharpie Paint. They are not felt tip markers, but actual oil
    based paint in a press to flow pen type cannister. I use them for
    marking scuba diving equipment. They eventually rub off slicker
    plastic surfaces, but are rather pemanent on everything else, even
    after a year of diving in salt water. They come in several colors,
    available in craft stores. Take a while to dry.
