BIC®

A trusted brand to promote yours!

BIC® is a well-known global brand that was founded in 1944 by Marcel Bich and Edouard Buffard in France. It wasn’t until 1957 when Marcel Bich, acquired Biro Swan, a leading pen company at the time, found its way to the UK and Ireland, and it's made an impact that's worth writing about!

Did you know? 20.3 million BIC® Stationery products are purchase every day worldwide!

The most famous pen would be the BIC® Cristal Pen that we all know and love – a long-lasting, affordable pen that has made its way into schools, homes and offices across the world.

Skip forward from 1957 to the present and BIC® are still leading the way when it comes to writing instruments. While the classic pens remain, such as the 4-Colour Pen (originally launched in 1970) Media Clic and Stic, their sense of responsibility and sustainability are clearly still at the heart of what they do; developing an eco-range of their best-selling pens as well as their commitment to a sustainable development program. These reasons alone are why they are one of our most trusted suppliers when it comes to promotional writing instruments.

Making a difference

BIC® believe in making a difference and how they conduct their business matters. Their sustainability program focuses on five ambitions capturing their vision in their message of ‘Writing the Future, Together'. However, they already boast a range of CSR based awards for sustainability, and have been granted gold recognition level by EcoVadis; and like us are a part of Sedex.

As mentioned you can still get your hands on their classic pens, however, their Ecolutions range is growing. This means, all of the best-selling ballpens from BIC® are available in recycled Ecolution versions. The most recent addition is the BIC® Media Clic Bio.
