just use regular white adhesive tape that you have in the medicine cabinet. Then mark the individual cables with a Sharpie.
granted this is better than nothing, but go back to that athletic tape in three or four years and see what a gooey unreadable mess you may have, depending on the amibient heat and humidity.
The Brother P Touch is another popular choice, with printers and tape available at most office supply stores.. Lots of complaints on waste with the P Touch line, but the labels hold up over time. Dymo, invented the home label maker (the original plastic tape labelling system people, you know, that pressed impression of each character into the maleable plastic adhesive tape stuff) the printer is an investment, but the heat shrink and seal laminating labels are very durable.
When in doubt, colored electrical tape goes a long way as well. Four colors of tape can render lots of variety if used in combinations of two or three.
