My mic cables came from the local music shop with colored heat shrink labels with the music store's contact information.  I went with just two lengths; 15' & 30' which covers 90% of the needs on a lounge level stage.  To identify them as mine, I wrote my initials on the colored heat shrink using a silver Sharpie.  Since I'm always out with my gear, that works for positive identification, but may not be the best solution for a busy audio shop.  The silver Sharpie is holding up okay on the cables, but really stands out on mic clips and stands.

I use the really small thin zip ties and put one around the cable at the male end of XLR cables.  That way at the snake head I can quickly identify my cables.  The general rule with me is that I supply all cables to the snake and any pass-thru cables used on DIs.  I do have a couple of instrument cables that I use as loaners from time to time.
