Is this custom-drawn or a typeface? Is there a typeface that is similar? Thank you!

Hi Linda. As you suggest, I believe this is lettering, not type. Note that each letter is unique. The two Rs in particular are quite different. If you want to emulate this style, I recommend hiring a lettering artist. But if you must use a font, I can help you find something similar. Are you most interested in something with these lettershapes, or is it the shadow effect that is more important?

Thanks so much, Stephen. I am interested in something similar to these letterforms, and am less concerned about the shadow since that's something I can render.

Right now, as a placeholder, I am using Gill Kayo Condensed because it has a similar overall heft, but the letterforms aren't similar at all.

Here are a few to check out:
