The pre-printed Porta-Pack® Wire Marker Books made of vinyl cloth offer the ease of a wide variety of number, letter, and symbol combinations, to make labeling jobs as simple as peeling and wrapping. The pre-printed packs have the added bonus of a terminal marker for each label. What that means is that for every label you wrap around a wire or cable, there is a single digit label included to allow you to easily mark the patch panel, switch, router or whatever other hardware may be feeding your equipment. These labels are perfect for general purpose wire marking.

Self-Laminating Wire and Cable Markers allow the user to write whatever message is needed, while the laminating over wrap keeps that message dry and free of smudges. These cable markers are oil, water, and solvent resistant to last right along with the wires they are labeling. Please note that the "Write-on area size" is the amount of room for written messages.

Write On Bradysleeve™ Polyolefin Porta-Packs® offer the ultimate in durability, but are a bit more difficult to use. This type of wire marker is a sleeve, or tube that goes around the wire or cable being labeled. What this means is its best used to label systems while they are being assembled, before cables are terminated and installed. There are two varieties of the tube style booklets, one with heat shrinkable polyolefin, and one that is a looser fitting sleeve. Since the write on portion of these markers does not have the ink protection of the self-laminating wraps, it is advised to use a high quality pen or marker, which is included with all of the Bradysleeve™ Porta-Packs.
