Holiday Card Retrospective

The Klarin & Associates team is a group of dedicated professionals who work hard all year to provide only the highest level of service to our clients. We also like to express our creative and humorous side once a year. Our holiday cards began with a touch of humor in 1994. We had such a good time planning and designing the card that we look forward to the challenge of creating a funnier card every year.
Following is a historical retrospective on our cards. Enjoy!!
