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.

Man’s best friend is deserving of the cutest swag there is to offer.


As cat cafes, dog-friendly establishments and off the leash parks become more popular, so does the ability to position your brand for pet parents to see. 


The pet industry is continuing to grow year over year. According to the 2019-2020 American Pet Products Association National Pet Owners Survey, 67% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 84.9 millions homes.


We live in an age where almost every outing is broadcasted on social media, presenting an opportunity to capitalize on items for furry friends. Gain attention of social media mavens and pet lovers alike by customizing adorable accessories that are sure to go viral. 


Whether it’s on a frisbee, on a collar or on a food bowl – options are endless when it comes to aligning your brand with pet products. 


And when your little guy or gal is all tuckered out, nothing says time to relax like cuddling up in a warm blanket. Your kitten or puppy will get attached to cozy items that are (of course) accompanied by belly rubs.
