ORDER AND SHIP EARLY! Orders may require longer lead times due to domestic and global 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.

Discover 7 reasons drinkware can be an effective advertising and branding tool. 

From cups and mugs to water bottles and more; drinkware is a classic promotional item that is always a big hit with recipients. With so many options to choose from, finding a drinkware option that fits your budget, marketing needs, and vision has never been easier.  
Check out our entire custom drinkware selection for a wide variety of mugs, tumblers, water bottles, glassware and more! 

1: Custom Drinkware Generates 1,400 Impressions Over a Year 

Custom drinkware is always a favorite among recipients. The Advertising Specialty Institute found that custom drinkware generates 1,400 impressions over a year on average. That means every time they grab a drink of water, coffee or any other beverage is an opportunity to interact with your brand.  

2: Custom Drinkware Items are 70% More Likely to be Kept 

When compared to other popular promotional products, the ASI also found that custom drinkware items are 70% more likely to be kept. That means the average 1,400 impressions drinkware generates is multiplied for even more brand exposure.  

3: Branding that Actively Supports Sustainability  

Non-reusable and unrecycled drinkware are some of the main contributors to pollution. When your brand chooses custom drinkware like water bottles, you could save an average of 156 plastic bottles annually per recipient.  

4: 78% of Consumers Own Promotional Drinkware 

According to ASI, 78% of consumers own promotional drinkware making them one of the most popular and effective branding solutions.  

5: Create the Perfect Brand Experience 

Serving a beverage can help attendees feel more relaxed during potentially awkward situations like introductions, meetings, networking events, etc. Try including custom drinkware like mugs for morning meetings over coffee to remind recipients of your brand's hospitality.  

6: Drinkware Accessories to Build Brand Exposure 

Getting creative with drinkware is a wonderful way to show audiences your attention to detail. Items like reusable straws, koozies and more can be a small way to add an extra element to any campaign, event or other branded experience.
