that actually seems like a really good idea. Probably not what I'm trying to achieve though. I'm only trying to find the most common handful that I use most often.

Use a label maker, it looks like a small keyboard with a built in printer. The pressure sensitive label tapes are ultra thin and come in many colors. There are different grades of labels too, better adhesives, tougher coatings, UV resistant, etc.

Good old Rustoleum Industrial works for me. Williams Tool now makes their wrenches in different colors. Kinda pricy though.:

Back when I spun wrenches in a bicycle shop I used the touch up paint that came with new bikes. Paint over the size and brand of the tool then wipe it off The paint stays in the recessed part and makes it easy to read. I used one color for the shops tools and another for mine. That was in 90/91 and the paint is still there!! BTW that touch up paint is pretty close to nail polish
