Born and raised in Kansas, just down the road from Hallmark’s headquarters, Meredithe Stuart-Smith transformed her passion for design into a global party brand. Now a trailblazer in the party supplies industry, the story began when, as a child, she would stick cards she designed in her window in the hopes that a Hallmark employee would notice. By the 1980s, she began crafting handmade cards at her kitchen table, sparking the birth of Meri Meri.

Fast forward nearly 40 years, and Meredithe now has 85 employees in the US and UK, and a global brand that is sold in over 80 countries. With an unwavering commitment to quality and a unique blend of timeless magic and creative charm, Meredithe's creations have become synonymous with stylish celebrations.
