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?



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. [[|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' [[|Quadrex]] is fairly close if you use the alternate A. They have a tutorial on creating a [[|prismatic effect]]. You could apply that to something like one of the heavy weights of [[|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 [[|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 [[|Knox]], a beveled serif font.
