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.

Running Toward Brand Recognition

On your marks, get set, promo!


With warmer months fast approaching, so is a full schedule of charity races, fun runs and more outdoor fitness-themed events. Sponsoring these types of events is a great way to not only start to generate awareness via cause marketing but also establish your company’s vital role in the community.


Create some buzz


When you sponsor any event, especially one like a walk, run or retreat, you immediately and substantially increase awareness of your brand. You’re giving your time and support to important causes in your area in a very public manner. When you start creating experiences that exemplify fun, excitement and community, people inevitably take notice. All this helps build brand awareness and loyalty.


Encouraging health and wellness causes not only ensures that your brand gains positive brand impressions during and long after the event. You’re also showing support for the causes that matter most to you and to those in your area.


Great giveaways and more


Giveaways at fun runs, walks and retreats don’t have to be boring. Branded merchandise can make great incentives to participate and even awards for winners. Think outside the box to get your brand noticed even further. While a good branded t-shirt can go an extremely long way, more fun and unique giveaways will create more hype at the events and beyond. Notable drinkware or unique and useful bags to get your name out there.


Additionally, if your employees are working the event, dress them to impress as your chosen brand ambassadors with branded gear that shows off your pride in your company and your community.


There are tons of unique ideas for how to utilize promotional products at springtime runs and walks. Be creative with your promotional products and your brand can stand out.


Make sure your brand is represented at local events with logged items people will love.
