Back to School with BIC! #Back2School

With a new school year starting here in a couple weeks, it’s the perfect time to create goals for a fresh start.

BIC’s main goal this year is to encourage students to write more often, because writing is by far one of the most important learning tools for a child’s academic success and growth. Research has shown that writing fosters children’s emotional and cognitive development, helps foster critical thinking skills and improves academic achievement.

To help achieve their goal, BIC has launched the “Fight for Your Write” campaign, which reinforces how fun and empowering writing can be. The campaign, which can be found at, offers information about writing and tips from literacy expert Pam Allyn to help parents, caregivers and students make a commitment to write more often.

This year’s list of must-haves includes the introduction of BIC Kids™, the first line of children’s writing instruments in the U.S. designed specifically to help children learn to write. The line includes the BIC Kids™ Mechanical Pencil, BIC Kids™ Pen, and the BIC Kids™ Stylus. Other must-have items include the BIC® 4-Color™ Metallic, BIC® 4-Color™ Mini, BIC Atlantis® Comfort, BIC Atlantis® Exact, BIC® Mechanical Pencil Xtra Shine, BIC® Magic Marker® Brand Dry Erase Marker and BIC® Wite-Out® Brand ZAP correction tape.
 BIC Kids is the first line of children’s writing instruments in the U.S. designed specifically to help children learn to write. The products, which were designed with the help of teachers and other experts in the field, provide young students with a unique guiding line to direct finger placement and are ergonomically designed specifically for kids’ hands. Whether a righty or a lefty, young students will soon realize that writing is an exciting everyday adventure!
  • BIC Kids Mechanical Pencil comes in pink or blue, and includes an eraser and lead refill with six leads. Students can also personalize their pencil with stickers. The Suggested Retail Price (SRP) for a one-pack is $3.49.
  • BIC Kids Pen is available in purple or green, and includes stickers for personalization. The SRP for a one-pack is $3.49
  • BIC Kids Stylus offers an innovative tool for small hands that helps children navigate tablets in the classroom or at home. The stylus has a soft grip and comes in black with a yellow guiding line. The BIC Kids Stylus has a SRP of $3.49 for a one-pack.
The iconic BIC 4-Color pen was the first of its kind, providing the convenient ability to choose from four ink colors (red, green, blue or black) at the click of a button to suit any mood or take on any writing task. Today, it remains a favorite among students and teachers.
  • The new BIC 4-Color Metallic is available in five vibrant, metallic barrel colors: silver, turquoise, pink, lime green and purple. It is the same great pen, just with a new, exciting look! The BIC 4-Color Metallic pen has a SRP of $2.99 for a one-pack.

New to the popular BIC Atlantis franchise for 2014 is the BIC Atlantis Comfort, which features BIC’s exclusive ink system for long-lasting smoothness. Students will find their ideas flowing freely with this pen, which also includes a comfortable full body grip for ease of writing. The BIC Atlantis Comfort pen has a SRP of $3.99 for a three-pack.
The new BIC Atlantis Exact has a fine point for exact, precise lines and clean writing! With a full grip area and smooth ink system, BIC Atlantis Exact is perfect for the studious note-taker. The BIC Atlantis Exact has a SRP of $3.99 for a three-pack.
Make sure your student shines this school year! The BIC mechanical pencil, a back-to-school favorite for years, is now available in a fun, new shiny, holographic design! Whether taking a test with its #2 lead or simply doodling, this pencil is perfect for any type of writing! The BIC Mechanical Pencil Xtra Shine has a SRP of $2.20 for a five-pack.

BIC is bringing the magic back! For a long-lasting ink supply, high-performance dry erase marker that erases easily, BIC Magic Marker Brand Dry Erase Marker offers a consistent flow of vivid, bold colors and low odor in one marker. Available in black, blue, red and green, a four-pack of BIC Magic Marker Brand Dry Erase Marker has a SRP of $5.99.

Who says mistakes aren’t cool? With BIC’s new Wite-Out brand ZAP!, students will have the convenience of correction tape in trendy neon designs! This correction tape is great for schools and easy for lefties or righties to use. It comes in a compact size for easy storage. This must have correction tool is available in a two-pack, with a SRP of $2.97.

Now that the kids are getting older, more and more items are getting added to the school supply lists.   My daughter's list is about triple the size of my son's list.  Items included ink pens, dry erase markers for student and teacher, white out, mechanical pencils and more!    I love the BIC kids line of products.  This is the first year we have been required to send pens for the kids and they are just what they need!  They fit perfectly in their hands and are easy to use!  The stylus is a plus too, each kid has an iPad assigned to them, so they will love using the stylus instead of fingers!

Both hubby and I work in higher education, myself in an office and he as a professor.  So we both need quality supplies for our offices and students to use as well.  Dry Erase Markers don't stop in elementary school, my husband eagerly too the BIC Magic Marker Brand Dry Erase Markers for his use in his classrooms.  The bright colors don't fade and the students in the back of the room can see the writing clearly!

We are in love with this years line of BIC products!  They offer individuality and  fun colors.  Whether you have a child entering elementary school or off to college, send them off in style this year with BIC!
