CutTime Partners with National Decorated Apparel and Branded Promotional Products Leader Team IP

Michelle Batten ·

St. Augustine, FL (February 8, 2024) - CutTime, LLC, a leading provider of fine arts program management software, announces a strategic partnership with Team IP, the premier apparel and promotional merchandise provider for amateur sports and championship events in the U.S. Through CutTime, Team IP is offering customizable digital storefronts for K-12 and community-based music, theater and dance programs, and is the newest curated supplier now operating within the CutTime Market.

CutTime subscribers can leverage Team IP’s extensive line of over 85,000 apparel options to create the ultimate spirit wear, competition memorabilia, and fundraising merchandise. With Team IP’s unique ecommerce platform, fine arts programs can create their own branded digital shop stocked with eye-popping designs, including Direct to Film (DTF) and embroidering for unlimited colors and decoration locations. Teachers, Booster Club Leaders, and Program Members will enjoy year round shopping opportunities without the hassles of pre-orders, sizing, and upfront ordering costs.

Fine arts programs face many hurdles with ordering, fulfilling, and managing spirit wear for their groups. Bulk ordering and distribution creates a lot of administrative headaches that steal precious teaching and advocacy time. Strict order windows become obstacles for servicing latecomers to the group and replacement emergencies during the season. Steep upfront ordering costs place additional financial burdens and risk on programs which are resource constrained.

“Team IP’s deep experience with championship events, merchandising, and digital servicing will allow us to solve another complex administrative challenge for our customers,” said Corey Black, CEO of CutTime. “We are thrilled to partner with Blaine Isbell and his talented team to equip fine arts educators and booster club leaders with a state-of-the-art eCommerce solution that can greatly enhance their year round access to top-of-the-line spirit wear and swag products.”
“Music, theater, and dance education programs dedicate themselves to achieving the highest levels of performance, but struggle to enjoy the same benefits as their athletic peers when it comes to spirit wear and merchandising,” said Blaine Isbell, Vice President at Team IP. “Teachers, Booster Club leaders and their program members want to display their artistic pride and increase awareness for what they do. CutTime and Team IP share this mission and are committed to streamlining digital store operations to make affordable apparel and other products more attainable for school and community fine arts programs.”
