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.

Order even earlier! That region is experiencing the longest delays.

SPP Trends: Mobility and Multifunction

09/02/2021 styles_trends

Discover how practical promo focused on mobility and functionality can help win over your audience.  


Every day is a new opportunity to get something accomplished. Now more than ever, consumers are searching for products and services that make remote work and their professional lives work smarter not harder. 


Why is Mobility and Multifunction Trending? 


Efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to the new pace of the world. As our lifestyles continue to evolve, our time has become more precious than ever. The future of mobility and our access to the world will be transformed by technological innovation, which includes the continued need to “work smart.” This puts an increased emphasis on saving time with the use of multifunctional items. 


Fast, easy and autonomous nature are all buzzwords that lend themselves to the push for the popularity of multifunctional items. Consumers are now making their own choices as it relates to what they want, how they want to receive it, and what these items or experiences can add to their life.  


Branding with Practicality in Mind 


Knowing how chaotic our lives can get, don’t add additional clutter to the mix. Branded products should be intentional and selected with practical purposes in mind.  


Keeping your branding fresh and practical with items that help with their everyday lives keeps recipients interested and excited about working or shopping with your brand in the future. Choosing items focused on mobility and multifunctionality shows recipients that your brand wants to alleviate their stress while avoiding associating your brand with clutter they need to deal with.  


Instead of presenting something flashy, present items that won't be overwhelming or difficult to match. Mobility and Multifunction graphics present themselves as minimal line drawings, small and repetitive icons and the muted neutral tones of a bold color palette. Black and white text and backgrounds paired with pastel colors allow the main ideas to shine and get what may be multiple ideas across harmoniously.  


Discover efficiency and learn more about the design and purpose of products focused on mobility and multifunction.
