English term or phrase: With compliments of/ from
Kindly help me with this phrase:

What is the correct preposition to use?
"With compliments of ... (company name)" or "With compliments from .. (company name)"?

If both are correct, is there any difference in meaning?

Thanks a lot in advance!

agree  Suzan Hamer: Yes, here "compliments" is meant in the sense of good wishes, kind regards or a courteous greeting. One receives "compliments from" or "is complimented by" someone as an expression of praise, commendation, or admiration.
