Brandon Moore, owner of Kismet Print Shop, applies the first of many vinyl stickers to a vehicle. The whole car was eventually covered with stickers simulating green flames.
Brandon and Felicia Moore believe it was more than luck when they discovered each other on an online dating site five years ago. Now the pair is teaming up on Kismet Print Shop with the hope fate is still on their side.
The couple purchased Kismet in May from John Roberts and relocated it from the lower level of PostNet to their home in OxBow Estates, 141 S. Oldham Road.
New to the printing business, the pair hired experienced designer Candace Johnson, who can design and layout just about any design for any theme, Felicia said.
From vinyl vehicle wrappings, business signs to stickers, Kismet can print both big and small jobs.
Kismet recently printed banners for the rodeo, Mountain Bible and Longhorn stickers for the high school.
“There is really no limit to our printing capability,” she said. “We support all local business and sports programs.”
Although they are located in Oxbow Estates, Felicia said they frequently meet up with clients in town.
Kismet’s printer holds sheets up to 36-inches wide, so for vehicle printings, vinyl sheets are pieced together. Done right, the final product has a cohesive look free of any visible seams.
The Moores say they are learning new things about the printing business every day and hope to eventually turn this knowledge and the business over to their three boys when they are old enough.
This emphasis on self-employment runs throughout the family, with Brandon the owner of Central Arizona Pump and Felicia a truck broker. Felicia says her husband likes challenges, and this penchant has helped him start several businesses, build his own home and take care of five children.
“Brandon likes to stay diverse when it comes to income because his first priority is taking care of his family and he takes that very seriously,” Felicia said.
The family is always on the move, from Brandon coaching football to Felicia instructing aerobics classes three times a week to working as a children's ministry director. The couple even manages to teach a marriage class at their church.
“I like to be busy,” Felicia said while watching her 3-year-old run around the house, a casserole bake in the oven all while talking with the Roundup. “I grew up in Portland, so I am used to the city life.”
The couple says teamwork keeps it all together.
