ORDER AND SHIP EARLY! Orders may require longer lead times due to domestic and global 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.

How to Choose Effective Promo Styles

05/12/2022 branding_basics

Learn the secret to easily choosing the most effective, stylish and innovative branding solutions for your marketing needs.  

Don’t settle for stuff over strategy. Promotional products do more than just advertise a brand; they convey a brand's true essence, share information, foster relationships and so much more. Discover the power of promo and learn how to choose the most effective products for your branding needs.  

Why Choose Promo for Marketing? 

Choosing promotional products is the best way to get the most out of your marketing budget. Unlike other forms of marketing, promotional products offer a physical reminder of your brand. The Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI) ASI found that 85% of those who receive apparel items, like shirts or hats, can recall the brand they received it from. Additionally, the ASI found that consumers are 2.5x more likely to have a positive opinion of promotional products than internet advertising. 

Representing Your Brand with the Right Branded Merchandise 

Choosing items people will want to wear and use will help grab everyone's attention. Whether you like it or not, everything your brand associates with or produces reflects your organization. Cutting corners or opting for low-quality materials, outdated styles, or any other “cost-cutting” solutions will cause audiences to associate your brand as low-quality and can lead recipients to believe that you don’t value them. 

Innovative Branding Solutions 

It’s not always about what your brand says, but how you say it. Some effective promotional items might seem insignificant, but even the smallest gestures, upgrades or special details can speak volumes about your brand. Thinking ahead to make something easier or an experience more exciting shows recipients that your brand is professional and prepared. Going the extra mile with special features or experiences like kits, online stores and more are great for avoiding “just handing over,” an item.     
Set your brand apart with innovative solutions to make milestones, first impressions and more for an experience they will always positively associate with your brand. For example, try welcoming new hires with a welcome gift with items to make them feel appreciated or prepare their space for a work-from-home setup.
