Chinese Stencil Font?

Does anyone know if a Chinese stencil font exists?

I'm looking to match Chinese text to a font in this sort of style: http://www.identifont.com/similar?681

As it's going to be cut-out, counters/apertures need to be reinforced to as not to all out. I've been looking around, but I can't find anything (likely to be my total lack of understanding of Chinese/Chinese Alphabets!).

Many thanks.

Important questions: is the text in Traditional Chinese (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau) or Simplified Chinese (Mainland China, Singapore)? A Traditional Chinese typeface would be useless if you need to render a Simplifed Chinese text and vice versa.

How long is the text? If it is short enough, modifying an existing non-stencil typeface may be an option.

It feels like there ought to be a stencil typeface for Chinese, but I can't find one despite looking through several foundries' offerings. I'm not familiar with Chinese typefaces in general, though.

Hi, yes should have been more specific. Traditional Chinese, not Simplified.

Thanks.

It won't be helpful since it's just a logotype, not a full typeface, and in the mingti style instead of sans-serif, but here's a design that works for stencil (though probably not originally intended as such):
