I think most people know what it is for.  I think our wedding planner put one of our invitations that the photgrapher was using for pictures in it before guests arrived just to make it clear.  We didn’t put any type of sign on it.

you could either put a decorative tag and label it "cards" or "card box" or you could insert a few "cards" (addressed empty envelopes?) to show its purpose.

I think most people know what it’s for but I still might put a card in it so people know or write “Cards” on a fancy little cut-out paper punch and incorporate it in the cage decor somewhere.

Went to one wedding where the sign/card was lost in transit.  Someone came up with the idea of placing empty but sealed envelopes into the cage.  Monkey see, monkey do…people followed suit with their cards.

I like the idea of a few fake cards in it more then a sign. The sign is like asking for gifts to me. I know that they’ve already brought it, but it still seems like you expected them in the first place! I’m a nut!

We used a birdcage and put a mock card in it addressed to us as a sample. Everyone knew what it was for though, so it worked out anyway!

We are using the really subtle approach. 😉 Seriously, I prefer “cards” to “Thank you.”  Looking like we are expecting cards seems to me less grabby than looking like we are expecting envelopes full of cash.
