I was more curious about on the raft itself. I know the standard is to either paint or use patch material, but sign vinyl is super cheap and easy to replace.

Take a piece of fabric that is a different color than your boat. Stencil on your info then cut out the letters and numbers with a razor knife. Glue it on to your boat and it will not fade away in the sun. Works great and lasts a long time.

I do something similar with my NRS frames. Laminated card rolled and taped to the inside of one of the pipes.

Only slightly related, but I also keep an organized file of pictures of all my major gear with serial numbers when available.
As ex law-enforcement, this is a VERY good idea. I also keep a database list with images and serials or identifiable marking. Can't tell you how many time I'd show up to a theft report and the victim gave me an inquisitive look when I asked them if they had a serial number... I'm going to borrow this idea and hide contact info inside my frame parts now. Well done.
