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.

Summer is the perfect time to encourage employees, clients, customers and more to take an active adventure. Why not use this summer as an opportunity to get them hooked on a new hobby? Learn more about how branded bird-watching items can be a surprising and unique way to get out and relax this summer.  


Finding Their Favorite New Hobby  


Whether in your own backyard or hiking along a wooded trail, bird watching is a delightful way to escape our technology-driven lives. Bird watching can be a relaxing hobby enjoyed from a comfy lawn chair or it can be an exciting challenge to add new and unusual birds to your life list.   


Bird watching can also provide a sense of community and can be a great way to meet new people. Bird watching groups host activities like guided tours or bird counts that bring people together to share their love for our feathered friends.   


Mental Health and Wellness 


It’s no secret that many people are searching for new ways to get out of their homes. Providing an outlet for recipients to immerse themselves in nature can improve their overall mental health and sense of well-being.  


According to the Audubon Society, birding improves our mental mindset.  Being outside reduces our sense of isolation as well as stress and anxiety.  Listening to bird calls can also help improve sensory awareness and become one with nature and our surroundings.
