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.

Grill Out

05/26/2021 seasonal

Let’s get grilling with branded products perfect for hosting the best barbecues, potlucks, block parties and so much more this summer.  


When thinking of summer, many people think of being outside spending time with family and friends while enjoying hot dogs, hamburgers, steak and other favorite barbecue classics. This summer, people are excited to gather with friends, family and neighbors after feeling isolated for so long.  


For your brand, this is a great opportunity to encourage safe outdoor gatherings that promote safety and your brand. Let your brand join in on the fun and be a part of the memories they make with branded merchandise that both amateur and grill masters will love.  


Branding the Barbecue 


Everyone loves a party! That’s why barbecues, potlucks, block parties and more offer the perfect opportunity to promote your brand.  


According to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association (HPBA), three out of four American households own a barbecue grill. The HPBA also found that a majority of grill owners use their grills year-round, with 45 percent grilling at least 1-2 times per week during the summer months.  


This means, every time they sit down to eat on a camping trip, pool party, potluck or even to enjoy a nice steak dinner at home, your brand will also have a seat at the table.
