Adhesive based attachments are not ideal for long term storage boxes. In our archives we are constantly walking over “reminder” post it notes that have fallen off. I would recommend using a mechanical attachment such as a plastic paper clip. If using a tape of some sort is necessary, then I would recommend book repair tape for its strength.
Most textile boxes have slits in them that you can place your label in. If you are worried about the PH level of your printer paper, you can check with your local office supply store. Surprisingly there is a much greater supply of PH neutral products available at your big box stores if you know what to look for. For the truly paranoid, you can encapsulate your label prior to attaching it to the box.
Hope this helps.
