Colophon and Branding
Note: Accurate, to the best of our knowledge, as of September 19th, 2014
The Carolina Bee company uses a number of fonts, colors and styles. We will try to keep a record as best as possible here. Squarespace forces us to use a number of their fonts and styles. I will try to make note of them.
