Merestone Receives 2015 Best of Scottsdale Award

Merestone has been selected for the 2015 Best of Scottsdale Award in the Services Allied To Motion Pictures category by the Scottsdale Award Program.

Each year, the Scottsdale Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Scottsdale area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2015 Scottsdale Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Scottsdale Award Program and data provided by third parties.

Ringing in 2015

Happy New Year from Merestone!

Looking back at 2014, it has been a year full of exciting changes for Merestone! We have renovated our headquarters by adding a brand new creative services area and expanded our office space for all the new faces that joined us this year. Down at the warehouse, we realized a lifelong goal of building three permanent studios, including a 30′ X 30′ green screen cyclorama. We were also able to increase space for both our audio and video departments that have grown.

We feel so blessed by the clients we worked with in 2014.

Thank you for making our 40th anniversary year so special!

We are excited to ring in the New Year with even more growth and our expansion into the Dallas market in 2015!

Individually Talented and Collectively Harmonious! Here we come 2015!!!
