You only focused on half of my post. I also mentioned a nice large banner/flag on the recovery system. You can also write on the chute in nice large print. Either one will force someone to handle the recovery system and see something written on it.

If the cone is off and you have info written all the way around the shoulder, someone putting the cone on will probably notice it (but could choose to ignore it). If it's written on one side, odds are they won't.

If you want to throw labels on the rocket, go for it. It's your rocket. I do that on multi stage demo rockets for schools where I know I'll not come close to getting it back near their playground or ball field.
I love sanding.
