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.

SPP Trends: Ethical Consumerism

09/30/2021 styles_trends

Incorporate sustainability and your brand’s values with branded products featuring vintage designs, earthly prints and natural colors.  


Brand Loyalty, Values and Morals 


In times of uncertainty or chaos, consumers want to know they can trust who they are choosing to do business with.  The pandemic has left lasting effects on consumers seeking out the common good. Cause-related marketing and product offerings that are centered around ethical consumerism have become increasingly popular.   


Showing that your organization will be supportive not only during hard times but also with community efforts to grow the community will grow your brand loyalty. Encouraging your target audience to volunteer, donate and support the causes they care about too is a great way to build awareness and get recipients involved  


Consumers want to shop from brands whose values align with theirs. These values include whether the brand gives back to the community, uses sustainable practices, is minority-owned, etc.  A vast majority of consumers want brands to support charitable causes. This will lead to brand loyalty as well as differentiate the company from its competitors.   


Vintage Designs, Earthy Prints and Natural Colors 


Designs that inspire nostalgia, sustainability and community are becoming increasingly popular in fashion. This past year has made consumers value simpler times and desire a healthier, happier planet in the future even more than before.  


This collection utilizes retro and vintage patterns, designs and typography to bring that sense of nostalgia. Taking recipients back to simpler times to remember what is important. Treating each other and the planet with respect.  


Using earthy prints and graphics is refreshing and interesting. This collection features a selection that can create a sense of feeling grounded and humble. Saving the planet, going green, or being outside are some of the ways nature can be visually represented. 


Showcasing your authenticity with transparent values will allow your brand to share messages that convey positivity and compassion with your community and other target audiences. Inspiring a diverse group of people to come together for one cause.
