Hey yall- we’re having an after party following the reception and I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to let guests know about it. I don’t want to include it on the invitation itself but also didn’t want to pay for a whole set of information cards in our invitation suite just for this, so I thought about using Mini Moo cards with this picture of the bar printed on the front:
And then just a simple message on the back saying something along the lines of “If you’d like to continue the celebration following the ceremony, please join us for drinks at the Rocks on the Roof bar on River Street.”
I’m just wondering if anyone’s used Mini Moo cards and if so, how did they turn out? I’m worried the writing on the back will be tiny and nobody will be able to read them! They look great on the preview screen on the website, but I’ve never seen one in real life, so I just want to make sure our guests won’t have to squint to read the message on the back!

I think they sound like a great idea for your purpose! I haven’t seen them in person yet, but we’re planning on getting them or something similar to ask guests to upload digital photos to an online album…
Several of the blogger bees have used the Mini Moo cards and liked them–have you seen Mrs. Seashell’s post? http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/09/09/wedding-cards/ She links to 2 more posts with the Mini Moos.

Thanks for the links! I can see they are easy enough to read from their pictures and now I have an idea how to include them in the invitation instead of just throwing them in envelope willy nilly.

Hi! We are using the Mini Moo cards as our favor donation tags. I was very pleased with them. We punched a tiny hole and tied a ribbon on each one and will be hanging them off a manzanita tree for guests to take.
Just so you know, though, they really are “mini”! I was surprised at how small they were, but the back text is very readable. I think they would be great for the purpose you’re using them for.
Here’s a quick picture I just took for you:
