It began in Los Angeles in 1985, Meredithe (who's childhood nickname was Meri Meri) was sitting at her kitchen table with some scissors and pens, and a BIG pot of glitter. The first cards were made that way.
The magic began. Local Stationery stores in Los Angeles loved those cards and asked for more. One kitchen table and one pair of scissors wasn't enough. Lots of kitchen tables and an ENORMOUS pot of glitter was needed.
Then, in 1987, they presented their little range of handmade cards at the National Stationery Show in New York. The response was phenomenal. The company grew from that little network of Moms working from home from Meredithe's designs and direction.
These days Meredithe heads a studio of twenty designers and artworkers and Meri Meri products are sold all over the world. Life is a little busier than it used to be. Working on lots of new projects, from their traditional cards and invitations, bakeware, gifts, partyware and so much more!
