I am not sure, if a permanent marker is what you want to use
directly on plastic objects. But if you decide to do so: I tested
several permanent markers back in 1999. Stabilo was not the worst,
but also not the best. Edding is by far more permanent. A PDF
document of my test results at the time are available at
