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.

Cheers to Volunteers

It takes a special kind of person to help those in need. Show volunteers that their hard work and time are appreciated with products to remind them of your organization. 

When people come together to volunteer, they can have a big impact on the world.  Those who donate their services to schools, hospitals, shelters, food pantries and more are helping create cleaner, safer and more connected communities. Say thank you and show your brand's support with products they can use while serving.  



Apparel items are the perfect keepsake any time of year. During the warm summer months, the District Concert Tank® is great for keeping volunteers cool if they are working outdoors. Whether they are helping in or outdoors, the Gildan® Adult Short Sleeve T-Shirt is sure to become their next favorite T-shirt. Treat special, trained or frequent volunteers, with the District Made Perfect Tri Long Sleeve Crew Shirt—perfect for rewarding special milestones, or those who complete training. 


Valucap Classic Dad's Cap 

Whether they need some extra shade or want to hide a bad hair day, every volunteer will love the Valucap Classic Dad's Cap. With over 40 color options to choose from, it’s easy to customize a hat they will want to wear long after they have served.    


16 oz. Stainless Steel Vacuum Bottle. 

Water bottles are always a fan favorite. Give volunteers a handy way to stay hydrated with the 16 oz. Stainless Steel Vacuum Bottle. They will appreciate the gesture and love keeping drinks hot or cold on-the-go at the gym, work and more.
