Cable identification systems

One of my sooner-rather-than-later projects is to unratsnest and label all of the miscellaneous network cables, power cords, and other random long thin things that I have around my computers. The key component there is to label them all.

The last thing I tried was to wrap mailing labels around them, and that didn't work well at all-- the adhesive didn't last, and they all wound up on the floor. This did not make me happy.

I'm willing to throw a few bucks at a product that works, or repurpose something else if it works well. I think I'd rather have something that hangs off the cables rather than something that just wraps around, since the former gives me more room. I expect them to all be handwritten.
