Labeling memory cards

When you are using the same size and brand memory card across different cameras, how are you labeling your cards so you don't mix things up?

Every camera has its two slots with assigned cards plus a BU of
each format.

For ex:
D3S = 2 CFs marked D3S
D3X = 2 CFs marked D3X
D810 = 2 CFs marked D810
+ 2 spare CFs marked "spare"
D850 =1 XQD + SDHC II marked D850 respectively. + spares.

If a body is missing a card, I know which I have to look for.

But do you have any labeling system to put on the cards?

Thank you

On the back of any card there is a spot to scribble directly
with a perm marker. STICKING A LABEL IS A BAD IDEA.

Why not just use one of those labeling machines?

If the used glue were not heat sensible, then it would less of
a problem. Cards are always warming up — some more, so-
me less — and that is not desirable in the tight compartement
they are in.

Dude, just use a gold marker.  That's what I do.

+1 Looks like ours are marked somewhat the same.  Mine are numbered with a white sharpy style marker
