ORDER AND SHIP EARLY! Orders may require longer lead times due to domestic and global 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.

SPP Trends: Back-to-School

07/18/2022 seasonal, styles_trends

Use branded merch this year to celebrate their return to school and encourage everyone's school pride. 


Back-to-School in 2022 

Kids and parents across the nation are already getting ready to head back to the classroom. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), there are 130,930 public and private K-12 schools in the US and over 50.7 million students based on federal projections.  
Many of these students are Gen Z, also known as the first, “digital native generation.” That means most of these students have almost always had access to computers, smartphones and the internet. For your brand, incorporating digital advertising like social media to your marketing strategy can increase your brand loyalty early on. A great example of this would be hosting an online contest where students tag your brand in their back-to-school photos for a chance to win a branded prize.  

Back-to-School Branding Benefits 

School spirit can be related closely to brand loyalty. Much like brand loyalty for corporations, stronger bonds and closer relationships between the student, parent or alumnus, leads to loyalty and support. For students, this can lead to an overall better environment they are excited to learn and grow in.   
Celebrating school pride can also help build community. Events like games, concerts, homecoming, pep rallies and more make residents feel excited to support the school. This can lead to sponsorships, donations and volunteers to benefit the school for generations to come.   
Check out the latest branded styles and trends selected by our expert merchandising team to start the 2022 school year off right.
