Staples Inc. has launched new online and in-store print and copy services designed to help small businesses build their brands and produce customized marketing materials.
Staples, No. 2 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, now offers more than 1,000 new print designs and products online and in stores, including postcards and templates for brochures and flyers. Shoppers can create an order using templates or upload their own designs online at Staples.com, work with Staples’ in-store print experts, or call a customer service representative for assistance. Orders can be delivered to the home or office, or picked up at the nearest store.
Print orders usually can be delivered in three to seven business days or sooner for jobs such as business cards, which can be prepared in a store in a few hours.
As an added incentive, Staples is offering 30% off all purchases of copy and print services of $30 or more produced in store, online or by phone through Nov. 12.
“Our customers can easily create a professional look and feel for their business with our improved design studio and work with our Staples Certified Print Pros who are available to offer their expertise on any type of copy and print job,” says John Burke, senior vice president of business services.
