Text effect for logo

Medium Priority

Hello, I'm trying to reproduce the text you see in the uploaded image.

This is the text I'd like to reproduce as closely as possible.
I can't find a font similar to this one and most of all I don't know how to create that sort of indent effect on the right of each letter.

The tools I have access to are Photoshop and Illustrator.

I hope somebody can help me.

Thanks.

Are you willing to pay for a font? Usually, these are premium paid for fonts

You can identify the font with online tool such as

I would pay, no problem, but I can't find it. I've tried identifying it with that website and others which offer the same service with different algorithms, but the fact that the words form an arch seems to be beyond said algorithms' recognition abilities.

Just a question... Why not open a gig on EE etc. for someone to design a logo for you?

I am the one who has to design the logo for my customer. They asked me to reproduce this text, changing the words, but they only have old and small raster versions of the text and I'm stuck.

Ok, I have yet to find a similar font but I have been able to reproduce the effect by creating three overlapping set of letters, in three different colours. I'll go with that, I guess.

Do you want to create a new logo with different text or same text?

The text is different. I've almost done it though, I just have to wait for my customer to choose a font among the ones I've proposed.

The font is Copperplate Gothic Bold. Been around forever. I think it was a system font about 20 yrs ago... I've attached a sample. I condensed the width, setting horizontal scale at 64%.

Definitely similar but the L runs down. Easy to edit though. Good to know

It's definitely a Copperplate, but possibly by a different foundry.

If you really want to hunt down an exact match, you might try the Identifont website:

Thanks! The original logo is more than half a century old, so I guess similar fonts would be old too.

I'll object to the closing so I can give you points.

About the websites, I had already tried out all the ones I know before turning in the question.
Namely:

Thank you, Daniele. I worked as a typesetter back in the 80s and fonts were so expensive and required so much space on those 8" floppy disks, we were limited to 32 fonts. Copperplate was one of them. LOL. Do check Identifont and search for font by similarity to Copperplate. There are several and you might find an exact match.

Daniele as I was browsing, just an after note  that you might find of help as well
these typesets fonts can also be created in powerpoint, start with a word Art format
 and then have the option to add a tilt to it and the effects you see in the text editor the color to 2  tones, you can also adjust the height of each font.
Save the power point as an image
This was just a 2 minute example

Your welcome hopefully you can use it. Many peoples forget the awesomeness of Power Point.  Another cool thing is you can copy this and paste into an image editor or a different tool like Photoshop or Paintshop pro which I use together with it.
Admittedly I still love and use an old version.
