ORDER AND SHIP EARLY!  Orders may require longer lead times due to post-pandemic shipping and industry-wide supply chain challenges.

Order And Ship Early!

A massive increase in online shopping and residential deliveries has created record-breaking shipment volumes for UPS, FedEx and USPS. They can't keep up with demand. This can add days to production and delivery times in some instances. As your partner, we are committed to providing you with the best possible experience and service. Planning ahead allows Staples Promotional Products to help you meet your desired timelines. If you have large orders and tight deadlines, please call customer service for extra planning and attention.

On-time delivery could require longer shipping lead times, so order early!

  • Delivery of in-stock orders may be delayed due to longer shipment transit times
  • Custom orders may be subject to double delays. Inventories may take longer to reach decorators. Once decorated, shipment to the customer can take longer too
  • Paying for expedited services no longer guarantees on-time delivery. Shippers have discontinued their “money-back” delivery time guarantees for the foreseeable future

Plan & order early!

While Staples is working with suppliers and freight carriers to secure priority processing, delays cannot be mitigated in all cases. Shipping carriers do not know when shipping volumes and capacities will normalize. We will keep you informed as volumes and shipping times improve.

Have a mandatory in-hands date?

Share it with customer service! They will know the best options to ensure timely delivery.

Order early if you can!

Build a few extra days into your timeline just in case.

Shipping to or from Southern California?

Order even earlier! That region is experiencing the longest delays.

American Assembled

06/09/2021 seasonal

Shop the American way and support local brands with some of our favorite promotional products assembled in the USA. 


It’s no secret that several of the products we use every day are often made in different countries. Start shopping our favorite products from our Assembled in the USA collection, and learn the benefits of using your brand to promote your organization's national and state pride.  


Benefits of Buying American 


People are proud to live in the United States and are excited to work and shop from brands that support American business. According to the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI), 57% of consumers have a more favorable opinion of an advertiser if the promotional product they received was assembled in the USA. For your brand, using promotional products from the United States can be a great way to gain respect from your audience while supporting local brands. 


American products are also associated with being higher quality and durable compared to products from other countries that are often considered flimsy or cheap. When you buy American, your brand creates a chain reaction of positive effects. Every American purchase shows your brand's support, ensures ethical working conditions and provides additional job opportunities locally while stimulating the economy. 


State Pride and Promo 


Home is where the heart is, so why not include it in your promo? Whether advertising on a national or local scale, incorporating state pride with your promotional products is a great way to pinpoint and connect with specific demographics.  


Personalization is often the key to the most successful marketing campaigns. For large brands, featuring a collection of exclusive state designs can make audiences everywhere feel represented and more connected to your brand. Small and local brands can also use their hometown or state to showcase their pride while reminding audiences that they’re a part of what makes their town, home.
