The lowest priced is just to use "Aluminum ID Markers" they can be imprinted 
by pressing with a ball point pen. The letters will stay for years. They 
come in packs of 50 with wires for tying to the pot or plant for about $5.95 
per pack. Try Mountain Valley Growers for these.

If you want something a little more professional try a Dymo Professional 
Typewritter that uses Aluminum tape and impresses the letters and it even 
punches a hole for a thin wire to tye to the plant or pot. The machine and 
kit cost about $170 with 16 foot rolls of aluminium tape refills about about 
$6 each. They also last for years.

If you want to go professional try a nursery printer that prints on plastic 
or laminate. They start at about $850 and print regular nursery tags with or 
without pictures.
