Switch Labeling ideas???

I would like to label the switches in my truck, but don't know how to do so other than a Dymo machine or something.

Any ideas on how to put a good label on switches?

i doubt your truck is like a cockpit of a 747, so why do you have to label the switches? however, if you feel the need, why don't you just use colored swiches? red, blue, orange, green, ....

Personally I would like a label for one of my switches that reads:

EJECT!
Use Only In Case Of Emergency

if you want labels why not try using high poilished stainless, or anodized in your color of choice. with a good adhesive and have them engraved with the function of that switch. thats what i did on my kenworth. you can buy the stainless nameplates for the switches in a big rig at any chrome shop. or look online at k&l chrome shop or wildwood chrome shop.
