The BIC® CLIC™ ballpoint pen, one of South Africa’s most iconic brands, commemorates its 60th anniversary this year. The traditional ‘click to write’ pen has a significant presence as a staple part of every South African’s stationary collection from students to office workers and everyone in between. To celebrate, BIC has designed a new gold and silver limited edition CLIC™ pen to honour this milestone.
We’re giving away 1 Bumper Stationary Hamper from BIC valued at R1 200 to celebrate this memorable milestone. To enter, simply fill in the form below. Entries close 7 September.
BIC has a heritage of producing products of the highest quality through simple innovation that make a difference in everyday lives. As the BIC® CLIC™ is a locally manufactured product, it holds even greater symbolic value in South Africa. Few are unfamiliar with the comforting click of BIC® and the place it holds in our hearts as immortalised by Miriam Makeba with her song famous “Click Song” officially called Qongqothwane.
As part of the 60th celebrations, for every specially marked pen pack that is purchased, BIC® is donating pens to underprivileged children and already 5 million pens have been given away to date. A pen symbolises intellect and potential that can be realised with the help of a solid education and BIC® positions itself strongly in the promotion of education.
South Africa’s favourite pen is known for its convenience and reliability with perfectly round balls almost as strong as a diamond created in a state of the art manufacturing process. Premium robust plastic, homemade inks and ultrasonic welding to create a one-piece pen made to withstand over 12 000 actuations, have made the BIC® CLIC™ the most convenient and reliable pen since 1956.
To find out more about the campaign and to follow the fun, you can join the BIC® Facebook Page ‘ BIC SA’ and follow the Twitter handle @Bic_Sa. Celebrate the fantastic heritage and consistent quality of the BIC® CLIC™ by getting your limited edition silver and gold pen pack today.
