1" medical tape. Cheap and no residue.

What Do You Use For "Channel Strip Tape"?

Rubber magnetic strips with ptouch labels with dance floor tape overtop.

Can you tell that I'm bored?

I can take them with me and spend no  time labeling my console for fly-ins.

Lance,

I can guarantee you'll find something that will work for you at this place or this place.

I use 1" and 1/2" artist tape most of the time.  Yeah, it occasionally smears, but not often enough that I worry about it.  By the time it gets to that point, I've usually got my assignments memorized…

That said, I really like white gaff tape and I've found white electrical tape works very nicely when it's not a cheap, off-brand type.  I don't mind paying a little more for something that makes my life easier.

We use Mag-Tags

Magnetic tags with pre-printed labels and blank ones for making your own. I think they work great for us.

I've recently use 3M Stickie tape. It's the same stuff on Stickie notes. I wouldn't use it outside, though. It could be blown off.

White, orange, green, pink, or whatever color I threw in the doghouse 2"gaff! I rip it horizontally to whatever width fits best and use the leftover to spike the stage. It leaves no residue. Is easy to write on and it doesn't smudge. A roll lasts a loooong time and inevitably someone runs a cable across a trafficked area and I'm the hero because I have the tape to mark it.

My local surplus store always has plenty of white half-inch tape for $.75/roll.  I'm guessing each roll has 10-20 yards on it although at that price I haven't taken the time to check.  It's plenty, anyhow.  No goo left behind, either.

I use 1" white gaff as a base for festivals with the generic uses marked in and then layer 1" Artist's tape over it with the specifics.
For indoor one night stuff I just use the artist's tape.

For indoors, good ol' masking tape, 3/4 inch.  Just make sure you remove it after the gig.  Outdoors, white gaff tape.
