Well, define large cutlists.

Usually if I need to keep track of parts, I will write what it is on the edge grain, if it’s plywood it won’t be visible, if it’s wood, then I can sand it away when I sand the edges easily enough. But honestly in most cases, just working by myself, I know what the part is, no one is going to move it, mix pieces together, or anything else. If I have questions, I just measure and look at my cutlists.

The danger with a sticker is that they are adhesive, if you leave them there too long, then you’re going to end up having to clean the sticker off because it will attach itself. If you do use a tape, get a low tack tape, it will take longer to stick itself permanently, and it won’t pull the veneers on thin veneered plywoods like even blue or green tape will. (Low tack is typically white, and will cost a little more than the normal painters tapes, and will be marked in some method as low tack.)
