October 2008



When QVC came to J.W. Oliphant & Associates and asked us to create collectible memorabilia to capture the historical significance of the 2008 presidential election, we were honored to oblige.

The challenge was to create from scratch a variety of products including apparel, collectibles, memorabilia and fine art. Given only four weeks to secure manufacturing, source deliverable hard goods, apply unique designs and provide QA sampling required our full range of talents and resources. J.W. Oliphant & Associates rose to this challenge producing 20 original products with 172 line item variations! Each product was modeled for evaluation and nurtured through the stringent QA process and as promised, QVC was given loadable inventories on time and within defined margin structures.

On October 3rd, 2008, QVC broke new ground in live television programming by offering their customers a “choice” of candidate inspired products all guaranteed to deliver two weeks prior to the national election.

VOTE 2008: Presidential Collectibles And Gifts with host Bob Bowersox and guest Jeff Oliphant went off without a hitch thanks to the combined efforts and expertise of J.W. Oliphant & Associates and many talented individuals at QVC!
