Hi all!

After giving me so many valueable hints about collection vials (thanks
for that!), I have again another question.

What kind of paper for labels is best in alcohol samples, or which
paper will survive many decades?

Certainly it is best to write with ink on the labels, but I would
prefer printing.
I tried to print the labels with a laserprinter on drafting film, but
it washes off in alcohol after some time; on paper it sticks better
(at least for some months). I also tried a dot matrix printer which
seems to persist better.

Thanks in advance for your help!
