About Us

Our Team is made up of two talented people and they share one thing: The Love for what they do.


PopShadowDecals was founded in 2010 as Tea finally decided to buy a vinyl cutter; something she wanted to do for many, many years.

Having previous experience with graphic design and vector formats, the love for stickers grew rapidly.  None of this would have ever been possible without Steve's support.


Our Team 

Tea Palella

Co-Owner and Founder, Design and Development

Tea is a Software Engineer.

Once a week, she teaches Computer Science classes at DeVry University.

The rest of the time she spends designing and producing vehicle wraps, decals, stickers, banners and other products from PopShadow's line of products.
 The love for perfect stickers came from her hobby for Motorcycle Racing and Track days.

Steve Palella

Co-Owner and Founder, Development and Application

As an accomplished motorcycle racer with multiple amateur and expert championships under his belt, paired with over a decade of business ownership, an attitude that no job is too big or too small and an unmatched dedication to details, Steve Palella can be often found laminating or weeding vinyl, transfer taping and cutting new applications.

If you are looking to wrap a semi-trailer, bus, automobile, or anything else, as an experienced Avery and 3M installer Steve Palella is the right person for you.
