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.

Why are Incentive and Recognition Vital to the Workplace? 


Without recognition, employees might start to wonder, "what am I doing this for?" With proper recognition tools, employees will be inspired to work harder and stay longer.  


Prioritizing incentive and recognition efforts can be the driving force for change. Showing appreciation with gifts, experiences and more can often help organizations average employee retention time, improving loyalty, performance, morale, recognition, performance and so much more.  


According to &, giving regular recognition results in a 15% increase in employee engagement and 90% of workers said recognition motivates them to do a better job.    


Engaged Employees and Work Performance 


The more emotionally engaged employees are with their work, the higher their productivity, the deeper their creativity, and the stronger their loyalty. Engaged employees are also more involved and enthusiastic about their work and workplace. They are psychologically driven toward high performance and innovation—moving organizations forward. 


A Gallup report found that highly engaged employees are as much as 43% more productive, a 21% increase in profitability and a 20% increase in sales. The report also found these organizations had 41% lower absenteeism and 40% fewer quality defects. 


Who Needs Recognition? 


Recognition needs to not just be for the top performers, but entire organizations from CEO to entry-level employees. A strong culture, one that fully recognizes employees for their efforts, contributions and results—is more likely to generate a positive brand experience.  


According to &, 37% of employees don’t think they receive enough recognition, and 64 % of workers would leave their job to work for a company that clearly recognizes contributions. Organizations often rely on incentive and recognition programs to increase efficiency, avoid burn out and increase loyalty to the brand.  


Remote and hybrid workers need 30% more recognition than office-based employees according to a Gartner market report. Make sure your organization reaches out to those still working from home to remind them that they are still part of the team and that your brand appreciates their contributions and ensures recipients feel seen and respected.
