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.

Get out and get gaming with branded products and merchandise perfect for picnics, barbecue, block parties and so much more! 


It’s time to get out to the backyard and enjoy the sunshine, fresh air and have fun outside. Discover how adding a fun surprise to their outdoor parties and gatherings can promote safety and good times and your brand this summer with yard games!  


Staying Safe this Summer


Mask restrictions are lifting, and people are excited to finally get the chance to gather with their friends, family and neighbors. While excited, many are still feeling cautious and apprehensive about gathering indoors.  


Timothy Brewer, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at the University of California Los Angeles expects outdoor gatherings to increase (and perhaps even expand in size slightly) as a safe way for individuals to get together. 


With gifts that focus on getting out this summer, you can be a part of the fun while promoting healthy gatherings, and your brand. Recipients will remember your brand’s generosity and showcases your dedication to health and safety as well as providing a good time. 


Backyard Party Time 


As the opportunities to gather outdoors increase for the first time in ages, we can finally have that barbecue with friends and enjoy each other’s company while playing some good ole fashioned yard games.  


These parties, get together and more offer businesses a great opportunity to promote their brand! Use your logo or other artwork on classic and unique games everyone will enjoy taking to every outdoor gathering this summer. Not only will recipients associate your brand with a great time, their guests, friends and family will too.
