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.

Buying brand name gifts can be beneficial for your brand.


Gifting prominent brands allows your recipients to truly feel your generosity, owing in part to associations with high-perceived value and high quality. Basically giving your business partners big brand promotional gifts is the gift that keeps on giving!

Spread joy to your appreciated associates and cherished customers this holiday season with big brands they know and love. The 2018 Seasonal Idea Book features tons of name-brands your recipients will recognize and love. Here are just a few examples:


90’s athletic mega brand Champion® is back and bigger than ever thanks to 90’s mania and athleisure trends. Their comfort married with style designs have been around for years and with their recent massive comeback, expect this brand to stay a household name for years to come. Stay trendy and keep your brand top of mind even on the go with the Champion® backpack in the Seasonal Idea Book.


Canadian-based outdoor brand Arc’Teryx has been creating outerwear note-worthy for its design, quality and simplicity for years. Reducing the effects of weather, streamlining use, and moving efficiently creates a timeless, outdoor experience. Having your brand prominently displayed on high-quality outwear items like the Arc’Teryx jacket allows positive impressions wherever the delighted recipient goes.


Moleskine® has defied all odds and continued to grow even in this digital age. Instead of simply staying the course with their classic notebooks, this recognizable brand has shown an aptitude for change and has successfully and noticeably entered the digital realm. The new generation of Moleskine® Paper Tablet and Pen+ transfers your notes from page to screen in real-time, bringing your ideas to life.


In today’s world, it’s all about instant gratification. Iconic technology and photography brand Kodak has realized and capitalized on this idea by bringing its high-quality technology into the instant camera game. These chic and compact branded cameras capture every important moment and then allow you to digitally edit and instantly print lasting mementos of your favorite memories.
