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.

Why You Should Celebrate International Women's Day

03/27/2019 industry_insights



In light of International Women’s Day (March 8), today’s trend will focus on the fairer sex and the culture that continues to encourage women to speak out. 


The evolution of how we treat and see women in the current age will continue to play an integral role in all industries and lives in 2019. In fact, inspiring and empowering women across the world to stand up for themselves and combat the sexual harassment that has occurred in their own lives and the lives of their peers isn’t just a trend. It’s a movement. 


For too long, industries of all varieties have been guilty of using outdated gender stereotypes or objectifying women to sell products and services. But the times, they are a’changing. And it’s time to support and empower women. 


Designers like Chanel and Dior are celebrating women by allowing them their right to choose how they display their sexuality. The dress code of what’s acceptable for a woman to wear in the workplace and beyond is being rewritten. Designers are creating clothes to support the woman, not attract the man. 


Other notable fashion houses including Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Alexander McQueen and more have set out to dismantle standardized notions of beauty for women, instead focusing on creating designs for women of all colors and sizes’ that speak to empowerment and protection. 


In the age of #MeToo, there has been a cultural shift in the way we talk about women. As the conversation around femininity and the modern woman keeps evolving, brands have begun to take note. 


If you’re not a part of the solution, you’re a part of the problem. 


Misogynistic messaging continues to contribute to a more unequal and dangerous society for women. Instead, take examples from brands like Gillette, Dove and Nike, who have decided to change the discourse and use their power to start a conversation. 


Beyond being damaging to womankind, gender stereotypes and similar belittling or offensive messaging is bad for business. Women are not a market niche – they are half of your customer base. If your brand is not talking to them properly, you are losing money. 


It’s time to break away from gender stereotypes, communicate with women in the manner that they deserve and empower them to live the lifestyle they desire.
