Who Offers The Most Distinct Colors For Category Patch Cables?

Labels get loose, markers get messy, I get lazy.

These three facts have led to an untenable situation in my wiring closet (photo on request).

Instead of addressing my failings directly, I felt a better approach considering my limited number of connections (~24) and panels (3), might be to just buy a distinct color for each of the patches needed.

The panels are on adjacent walls, so 6 ft patch cables should do the trick.

Then it’ll be easy to see where anything goes, right?

Is this a stupid idea?
