I’m a self proclaimed pen fanatic.  Call me crazy, but there’s just something about buying a new pen that writes perfectly that makes me extremely happy every time I put pen to paper.  One of my very favorite brands of writing equipment is and always has been BIC; BIC pens are affordable, reliable, and they are constantly coming up with new and exciting ways to make writing fun!  Our back-to-school blowout definitely wouldn’t be complete without including BIC and they didn’t disappoint.  BIC sent me some of the products from their 2013 back-to-school lineup and I can’t wait to tell you all about them (and maybe offer one of y’all the chance to win ALL of them—keeping reading).


This year’s list of must-haves for back-to-school includes the BIC Tech 2-in-1 Stylus and Pen. BIC Automatics Mechanical Pencils, BIC for Her Gel Marker Pens, BIC Brite Liner Highlighter Tape, BIC Round Stic Grip pen, BIC Round Stic Grip Fashion ink pens and BIC Z4+ Roller refresh.  BIC says that there’s “something for every student in this year’s back-to-school lineup, from fashion forward BIC for Her to the innovative BIC Mechanical Pencil and BIC Tech 2-in-1 Stylus.  The style and reliability of our products means that students can take on any assignment with confidence, and parents will appreciate the value that BIC provides.”

BIC Back-to-School Must Haves 2013

BIC Tech 2-in-1 Stylus and Pen:  The BIC Tech Stylus and Pen features a lightweight stylus on one end and a retractable ballpoint pen on the other.  The Stylus and Pen makes it possible to move from the tablet or smartphone to paper with ease and without having to search for two different instruments—I love the convenience of it!  My oldest daughter has been using the BIC Tech 2-in-1 Stylus and Pen on her tablet, she says that she loves how easily the stylus allows her to accurately complete her work in record time.


BIC Automatic Mechanical Pencil:  The BIC Automatic Mechanical Pencil makes it easy to retract and protect lead with just one click at the top of the barrel.  I’m a big mechanical pencil user (traditional pencils seem to make my carpal tunnel flare up quite a bit) but I hate constantly breaking the lead and clicking the eraser for what seems like hours to produce lead…this pencil is quite possibly the best I’ve used—it’s seriously awesome and if you haven’t used it you NEED to run out and pick some up!

BIC for Her Gel and Marker Pens:  For beautifully smooth writing that will pass any test!

  • BIC for Her Gel Pens are stylish and have a beautifully designed barrel, a contoured rubber grip and a floral design embossed on the tip of the pen—so classy! 
  • BIC for Her Marker pens are available in black, pink and purple ink and offer precise and beautifully creative writing. 

BIC Brite Liner Highlighter Tape:  Re-inventing the way we look at highlighters!  This fluorescent tape adds vibrant highlights without bleeding through—um, awesome and it’s available in pink and yellow.


BIC Round Stic Grip:  An old favorite among students, teachers and parents, this old standby gets a new look and is now offered in a variety of fun, funky, vibrant colors (pink, purple, turquoise, and lime green).  The BIC Round Stic grip is perfect for everyday writing and is available in both fine and medium points for around $2 for an 8 pack—now that’s a deal!

BIC Z4+ Roller:  The Z4 also has a bold new look and is now offered in black, blue and assorted inks.  It’s neon ink colors make every writing assignment fun and funky and these pens provide an amazingly smooth writing experience—they are my favorite of all of the must-haves!
