Some color print material is non-absorbent, as I discovered trying to label
them on my bubble-jet printer - which ink does not air-dry well. Try a
fine-tip felt-pen - if that fails, try regular pen w/ permanent india ink.
Me, I use small Avery labels, since the prints are of no particularly
intrinsic value, but just for memory.
I once came across a large cardboard box in a barn's workshed full of b&w
photos of a deceased couple's life and relatives - and not a name or date
on any of them. Their adult children had no idea who they were.
Always label your photos, and date them if possible, even within the year.
