Years ago I had a team documenting processes to be included in a database.
Everything was being hand drawn. To save time, we wrote the process and
output on labels that were attached with temorary glue. (The labels
remained on their paper backing until everything was finalized.) We had
some bright DFDs; some of the right-sized labels were bright orange and
lime green.
