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?

Case Study: Attention Drawing Giveaways

03/20/2019 industry_insights

Giveaways The Crowd Will Come Back For.


The goal of any giveaway is to create a buzz, to attract attention to your organization and get people talking about it. But as any marketer could tell you, this is often easier said than done.

Unless, that is, you’re Rich Wiley, Dealer Channel & Merchandise Manager for the New Holland Agriculture and Construction brands at CNH Industrial, who has discovered the secret getting people coming back to his tradeshow booth year after year – with collectable giveaways, in this case stress relievers.

“I inherited this from New Holland,” Wiley said. “We were giving out farm animal stress relievers every year. We had given out a horse and a chicken, a cow, basically standard farm animal shapes with our logo on them.”

These were a big hit at the farm shows at which New Holland exhibits.

“I noticed people taking them and coming back to get the new one every year,” Wiley said. “They were collecting them.”

Especially popular with the families who attend the shows, which Wiley describes as county fairs without the rides, CNH soon ran out of animal shapes and had to get creative.

“I started thinking about custom shapes,” he said. “I’ve done tractors, speedrowers, a combine. We did a grape harvester for a show in California, a skid steer for our construction shows, I’ve done peanut and peaches in Georgia, corn kernels, all sorts of shapes.”

They’ve become so popular, Wiley has to divide them up with a certain number per day to make sure he doesn’t run out. Of course that doesn’t always work.

“At a show in California we were giving out grape harvesters (and) at the end of the day a little boy came by and saw we were out,” Wiley said. “His mother asked if we had any more, but before I could answer he was walking away with tears in his eyes. This was on day two, so I went and got him one (from the day three box) and that made him happy.”

It’s not just a feeling of good will that New Holland is generating with this giveaway either. They have also seen traffic and leads increase.

“We’ve seen traffic increase to our tent 30-50%,” Wiley said. “We can’t attribute it all to (the stress relievers), but it’s definitely a part. People see other people with them and come to our lot looking for them. It drives people to the tent for potential interactions with salespeople.”

Overall, the giveaway has been a great success, as year after year as people stop by to collect the newest version. Not only are they visiting the booth, but the stress relievers are generating countless brand impressions wherever they’re displayed by the recipients.
