[4] [27] Bich shortened his name to Bic in 1953, forming the ballpoint brand Bic now recognized globally. [5] Bic pens struggled until the company launched its "Writes First Time, Every Time!" [28] [29] advertising campaign in the 1960s. [5] Competition during this era forced unit prices to drop considerably. [5] Inks [ edit ] Collingridge, M. R. et al.

Bic makes this pen at its own plants in Europe.The first complete specifications appear to be UK 498997, June 1938 and UK 512218, December 1938; his rather basic Hungarian patent 120037 was dated April 1938."
