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.

Big Name Brands Make A Difference

05/22/2019 styles_trends branding_basics

Retail brands can make a world of difference with your promotional merchandise.


Create a direct correlation between your brand and a prominent retail brand to provide your promotional products with longevity and your consumers with confidence. Promoting your brand alongside a retail brand ensures your items elicit a higher perceived-value, allowing you to deeply resonate with your consumers.


Pairing your logo with brand name promotional products reflects an image of quality, reliability, and excellence. From bags and apparel to pens, accessories, gadgets and more, retail brand products make the right impression with your audience every time.


When you choose name brand promotional merchandise you show that you truly care about how you present yourself and your business. It also ensures that the item will be kept and used frequently. After all, the longer the item is kept, the more impressions it makes on the recipient and everyone they come into contact with.


Using retail brands gives you a repeated exposure of your business.


This is due to the fact that a useful, recognizable brand item such as drinkware, watch or a keychain is always visible to the potential customer. This in turn makes your brand more visible. People will see your logo and associate your brand with quality. In this way, these items become versatile marketing platforms as they are used again and again.


It’s not just the items themselves, either. While many actual retail brands are now available as customizable promotional products, non-name brand items are also starting to emulate the retail look and feel when it comes to product design. Companies want to give out items that have an impressive retail feel, that they know their recipients will use.


You want increased brand recognition and favorable brand impressions. We want that as well! And we can help you get it with retail brand promotional products.
