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.

SPP Trends: Pride Month

05/17/2021 styles_trends branding_basics

Celebrate diversity, discover ways to assist in creating a more inclusive society, and learn more about the history of the LGBTQ+ community. 

 

Share that you’re an LGBTQ+ advocate by investing in custom merchandise which will show support for years to come. 

 

Why Celebrate Pride? 

 

When you spread love, people notice. Continued progress for diversity and inclusion depends on support, engagement, and celebration of the LGBTQ community.  By showing support and awareness the greater public can promote dignity, equal-rights, self-affirmation, and help to increase society’s attention on a variety of LGBTQ issues. 

Whether they are an ally or part of the LGBTQ community themselves, people appreciate brands showing their support and raising awareness and acceptance. Encouraging open discussions and creating safe spaces to support equality both in and out of the workplace is a great way for brands to show the world and their associates that they are proud to be an ally.  

   

Pride Events

 

Pride events take place around the world throughout the year and during Pride month in June. Traditionally these annual celebrations include marches, parades and festivals. However, many people are finding new creative ways to celebrate.  

Providing a creative and memorable experience can make the audience feel connected no matter how they are able to celebrate. Participating in social media trends, hosting online parties or distributing rainbow-themed swag are all great ways to show support to all members and allies of the community. Audience members will appreciate all your brand’s efforts and see you as a fellow ally willing to support and participate in the community.

Invite others to recognize an impactful movement through the month of June and beyond. Organize virtual entertainment such as dance parties, independent 5K’s and more. Get the conversation started when it comes to creating a positive and inclusive environment – Show your pride!
