Well, I tried getting the garden marker first but no luck. A place nearby had the Sharpie Extreme markers so I bought those, will let you know how it works out.

Thanks everyone!

Has anyone tried so-called paint markers? Are these fine pointed & durable enough for labeling purposes?
Regarding paragraph 1, I find that if I just use an erasure on the tag, enough to remove the gloss, that a #2 pencil takes fine. Regarding the paint marker, the ones I have used did not have a fine enough tip to mark tags, although maybe someone makes them with a finer tip.
