As you're getting ready for Christmas, we've got a special little treat for you. All characters- alphabet, accented letters, symbols and numbers- were created with shape layers. Color controls have been applied to all of the characters making color changes very easy. The characters are animated using the Trim Paths shape layer operator which is editable in the slider control effect labeled "Animate On" in the Effects Controls panel.

You can piece these characters together however you like to form whatever words you need. To use the same character twice in the same composition but with different colors, copy the shape layer from the Character's composition and paste it into your working composition.
