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.

Wood and Linen and Denim, Oh My!

03/20/2019 styles_trends

Three textiles your brand needs

When you add uniqueness and trendy touches to an everyday product, people take notice. Making sure that your giveaways and promotions are current will help increase brand impressions and popularity. Wood, linen and denim are timeless materials, so consider adding some of these trends into your promotional products!

Wood: Nature never goes out of style

Wood creates a natural warmth and texture in a classic look. The character of natural wood just can’t be overlooked; it adds unexpected beauty to everyday products. The subtle differentiations in pattern and color add individuality into each piece of wood. Whether you’re going for a reclaimed, rustic look or just something more natural, the addition of wood is sure to add visual interest to your campaign, event or promotion.

From wooden water bottles and tumblers to wooden coasters and speakers, you’re sure to find a variety of brand-boosting wood styles through Staples Promotional Products.

Linen: More than just a unique texture

The linen trend is linked to the desire for everything organic. Many people are gravitating to the idea of eating clean and healthy, and this includes cutting out anything processed. The organic eating trend then extended into choosing a fabric that looked almost untreated. The muted and natural colors of linen are soft and comfortable, and the textured weave has a uniqueness of its own.

Denim: A revived style

It’s baaaack! Available in a wide variety of washes and styles, denim is full of variety and opportunity. Although denim continues to change and evolve, it has long been considered one of the most versatile and classic materials for clothing. But why limit denim to just your clothing? Think denim accessories, bags, shoes, shirts and so much more. Stay ahead of the competition and get yourself some denim promotional products!

Denim shirts and caps are versatile pieces that can be easily added to any campaign or promotion.

How you can use these trends

Remember these trends when you’re picking out your next giveaway or gift. Consider your audience too. You may just find that Gen Z appreciates the newness of these styles as much as Gen X, and Millennials love the nostalgia. If you want it to be used, worn or displayed, think trendy. Think wood, linen and denim.
