How can I make notes on my cards about APR's and Rewards catagories?

So now I have 3 good rewards cards in my wallet with different terms, intro APR periods and rewards catagories and I have a hard time remembering the details. I need some way of keeping the notes on the cards or in my wallet so the note won't get destroyed from ware.

 

Ideas?

I just use one of those little Dyno label printers to print sticky labels I can put on the back of my card.  They fit quite nicely below the signature area on the back.

 

Very handy to remind me not only of the rewards structure of the card itself, but the add-on rewards programs I have them linked to.

Current: EQ 686 (myFICO 7/11/14), EX 716 (CreditSesame FAKO 6/3/14) , TU 691 (WalMart 7/11/14) Goal: 700+ x3
My Wallet: Amex BCP $30k, Chase CSP VS $12.2k, Amex Zync NPSL (> 10k), C1 Venture VS $5k, Amex SPG $4.5k, Barclaycard Apple V $2k, Walmart (Store) $1.6k, Chase Freedom V $1100, BoA Cash Rewards V $500, Best Buy Rewards MC $500

I like that.. I could even put a little sticker on there with my current balances in a column.
