02- Culinary Culture
A letterpress card especially designed for Culinary Culture, a site for serious and aspiring food foodies. The red cards were letterpress printed on 220lb Crane Lettra, 100% cotton stock. They are printed three colors on the logo side and two colors on the text side. Additionally, the logo side needed the dark red run as two passes. The heavy ink density needed to cover a solid versus the light ink density for text lets the type remain crisp and the solid run as saturated as possible. (That means this piece of paper ran through the press six times – four on front, two on back.)

07- Jason Romine Construction, LLC
The highlight of this card is a wax seal logo with depth and movement to suggest a seal that has just been stamped and allowed to set briefly. The warm red center shows the heat that still sits with the stamp and the thick outer edges suggest a build up of wax that was pushed outside of the stamped area. Follow up with a carefully crafted business card that is on the highest quality card stock with an ivory matte finish and using spot UV over just the wax seal portions of the business card. All of these elements speak to care and consideration in all the details; Just like Jason’s own construction of fine furniture and artisan built products.
