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.

SPP Trends: Desk Ideas

Set them up for success with branded merchandise that will make all your employees feel comfortable and excited to get back to their office desk.


The world is going back to normal with businesses returning to the office and events starting up again. After spending so much time in isolation, creativity will be key for companies when bringing people back to the office and keeping them excited.


Learn how your organization can make the most out of returning to work with products to make employees excited to return to their desks again. 


Returning to Work


Now that vaccines are available, it’s time to get back to normal. While some are excited to return to the office, others are feeling more nervous and apprehensive. After spending so much time at home, organizations need to be considerate and patient with employees readjusting to office life.


It’s important to keep morale high while everyone is getting back into the swing of things. Use this as an opportunity to show employees how much their hard work, flexibility and understanding while working from home has been appreciated with items that will help them get back to business as usual. 


Creating a Personalized Space


A workspace can say a lot about a person. There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution when it comes to creating a productive workspace. Everyone has different working styles. For instance, the level of preferred noise, decoration and organization differ from person to person in any workspace. 


Providing items that make the transition from working at home to the office easier will show employees that your organization genuinely appreciates their work and show everyone how excited you are to have them in the office again. 


Check out some of our favorite branded desk items to set employees up for a successful return to the office.
