Hey everyone, I'm looking for the font or a font that's used for those age-old open/closed storefront signs that a.re usually two-toned and have a beveled look. Is there even suck thing as a multi-colored font? Here's an example:

You're looking for fonts that are "outline" fonts much like the collection of such faces by H&FJ called the "Shades" collection shown here:

These fonts are typically used to create "chromatic" effects on the page since the highlight and lowlight areas of the faces (set directly on top of each other so they interlock) are set in different colors.
