Writing on slate signs?

I have some slate signs for the community garden. The medium for writing on them would need to be semi-permanent. Someone recommended white Artline Decorite pens, but these are water-based and wash off fairly easily. A pen would be easier than a paint brush - neat letter of any fashion really not my forte. I don't know what cafes and pubs etc use for there chalk boards. If I use acrylics paint, I imagine these would wash off also, after, say, six months, unless varnished. (I have the slate and the metal crooks and want to use these, not another method).
I’ll check with him which brand he used.
