My name is Shea Hignell and I am the owner and messy hands behind The Printed Pearl. God's amazing path and funny sense of humor led me to the world of lettering, and I'm proud to honor my Grandma Pearl through my little place in the creative biz.

I am 23 years old, a fairly recent graduate from Chico state with a B.S. in Environmental Science, and am fresh into the first year of marriage to my sweet, kooky soul mate of a husband. We have an adorable baby Pug named Rogue and our life here in Chico is all I could ever want and more.

“I believe that the gifts we have in this life are supposed to be used to GIVE, rather than for our own personal benefit. My favorite quote of all time says, “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'”
