This is a text shadowing effect.

text-shadow:
  _horizontal_offset_
  _vertical_offset_
  (_blur_)
  _color_,
  (_other_shadows_);

let’s take a look at a live example at cdpn.io/e/aDLCl.

The text-shadow property has a twin: box-shadow. Go to the Box Shadow page to see a detailed description of the syntax. It is very similar.

Tip – you can use multiple text shadow values to create a pseudo-3D effect.

Browser Support

IE10+. In older browsers, you can use a fallback without a shadow (preferred) or simply create an IE8 version. Using Modernizr conditions or IE conditional comments you can create a DropShadow (using a Microsoft filter).
