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?
It is quite usual on a business compliments slip for the phrase "With compliments" to stand alone, as suggested by Allison in her answer. If the name follows below there's no need for it to be joined grammatically.
