Staples Launches ‘Make More Happen,’ New Tagline And Campaign

Staples, Inc. (NASADAQ: SPLS) is taking the latest step in its reinvention today with the launch of “Make More Happen,” a new tagline and campaign focused on how Staples’ expanded product assortment helps businesses succeed. The campaign showcases the new Staples, the world’s second largest internet retailer with more products in more categories with more ways to shop. The brand re-launch includes a twist on Staples’ iconic logo and the first change to its tagline in more than 10 years.

Make More Happen highlights how Staples is reinventing itself to provide every product businesses need to succeed,” said Shira Goodman, Executive Vice President, Global Growth. “We’re adding thousands of new products every day. Our expanded product assortment appeals to businesses across a wide range of industries, from medical and restaurants to professional services and retail.”

A fully integrated brand advertising campaign, which begins nationally on Monday, Jan. 6, features the new “Make More Happen” tagline in the first of four new television spots that demonstrate the breadth of Staples assortment.

“Staples makes it easy to make more happen by providing all the stuff businesses need to get stuff done,” said Steve Fund, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing. “Our new campaign shows that if you have an idea, Staples has all the products you need to bring it to life.”

The lead: 30-second brand spot, titled “Big Idea,” is set in an ultra-modern factory where workers are using products purchased through Staples including the latest technology, safety equipment, factory signs and even coffee. The assembly line is producing the biggest idea ever seen. But ultimately, the assembly line produces nothing, illustrating that Staples has everything business need, except the big idea. Three additional spots will begin to air in February on cable and primetime network programming, including CBS’s Big Bang Theory and ABC’s Scandal and Modern Family.
