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.

Show Your Pride

05/12/2020 seasonal

Show your brand's true colors. Celebrate the history of advocating for love, equality and inclusion for the LGBTQ+ community by supporting National Pride Month this June.  

 

Throughout history, heroes in the LGBTQ+ community have fought for equality, inclusion and acceptance. Learn more about the history and significance of celebrating Pride Month and why it’s important to support the LGBTQ+ community.  

 

It all started June 28, 1969, in New York City with the Stonewall Riots when New York Police raided a gay club at the Stonewall Inn. This altercation sparked more protests and symbolized the beginning of the movement to end discrimination and demand equality for the LGBTQ+ community. Every year since, parades, marches and other gatherings are held worldwide to celebrate and advocate equality, inclusion and the victories of the movement, like the legalization of same-sex marriage in 2015.  

 

Pride month is an important time to look at the future. Celebrations will be a little different this year, but it’s still important for brands to show they are allies. With several parades opting for digital experiences worldwide, providing a creative and memorable experience can make the audience feel connected, despite being unable to be there in person. Participating in social media trends, hosting online parties or distributing rainbow-themed swag are all great ways to show support. 

 

Encouraging open discussion and creating safe spaces to support equality at the workplace is a great way for your brand to be an ally.  Celebrate diversity and give employees the tools to feel comfortable sharing their point of view and show how much their hard work and dedication is appreciated.
