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.

Redefine Working Remotely

03/25/2020 worklife

Home office sweet home office. Avoid distractions like a pro with tips and tricks to keep things business as usual.   

There’s no place like home (office). Stay productive, creative and focused by following these five working-from-home hacks.   

 

Stay in One Space 

Pick one workspace and stick with it! Jumping from room to room creates huge distractions and blurs the line between homelife and work-life.  Ideally, this space will include a chair with good back support, decent lighting and a door to avoid distractions. Avoid lounging in bed or on a couch to keep your resting places sacred to resting; instead opt for a table or desk to maintain a professional working space.  

 

Plan Ahead 

Setting a schedule is a surefire way to start the day off right. Create a to-do list of everything you need to accomplish that day and prioritize them by what needs to be done first. Set rewards for reaching progress goals like a having short break or taking quick minute walk outside to avoid getting burned out or overwhelmed.  

 

Avoid Distractions 

Sometimes avoiding the distractions of family, chores, errands and more is easier said than done. Being able to set time aside to handle chores and errands is one of the biggest benefits of working from home. If you do need to run to the store or fold laundry, set a timer for 10-15 minutes or use your lunch break to ensure you stay on track. To avoid distractions from kids or family, keeping them entertained is essential!  Try providing puzzles, toys, games and movies to keep them occupied while you are hard at work.  

 

Don’t Stay in Pajamas 

While staying in pajamas all day might seem like the only perk of working from home, changing clothes is a great way to raise confidence and get in the right mind-space. Freshening up in the morning will also prevent being caught off guard for any video conferences or online meetings. 

 

Chat with Coworkers 

Communication is key!  Utilize email, video conferences and more to stay connected and check in with coworkers both personally and professionally.  This will help keep the loneliness at bay and maintain the relationships you have with your coworkers.
