Yes, We're OPEN typeface

Can anyone help ID the beveled typeface used on these open signs? I have found many options but not this exact one. How about the base font used without the bevel?

Thanks!

There aren't many off-the-shelf beveled typefaces. You might take a look at Refrigerator, as an alternative for the base.

Not an exact match, but Powerstation has a beveled version.

These could have been done by an old sign shop, either using a digital font that is specific to some machinery of theirs or even some pre-digital system.

Prismatic is another term for this effect, especially in the sign industry. [[http://signdna.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_10&zenid=35d97...|Sign DNA]] have a few prismatic fonts that might be a close match, but they don't show a full character set for any of them.
Letterhead Fonts' [[http://www.letterheadfonts.com/fonts/quadrex.php|Quadrex]] is fairly close if you use the alternate A. They have a tutorial on creating a [[http://www.letterheadfonts.com/tutorials/prismaticeffects/index.php|prismatic effect]]. You could apply that to something like one of the heavy weights of [[http://www.letterheadfonts.com/tutorials/prismaticeffects/index.php|Agency Gothic]].

Thanks guys! Some good options here.

There's also the Fontry's Race Pak.

This is Valuco by Aesthetic Apparatus, They made a Kickstarter campaign to fund it!

There is also [[http://www.fontshop.com/fonts/downloads/fontfont/ff_primary_ot/|FF Primary]], which uses overlaying of beveled shadows to create the 3D effect. Hard to see on the web site, but the printed sample in their catalog gives the idea.

Hoefler & Frere-Jones also has [[http://www.typography.com/fonts/font_overview.php?productLineID=100014&p...|Knox]], a beveled serif font.
