Let’s take a trip down memory lane for a second. You’re back in school sitting at your desk taking notes during class, when all of a sudden one of your friends whips out one of the coolest writing instruments you’ve ever seen.

We’re talking, of course, about the #4C BIC® 4-Color™ Pen! With this bad boy, not only could your friend switch back and forth between the traditional blue or black ink while writing, but they also had at their disposal (with just the click of a button) red and green inks, as well!

You, of course, had to have one of your own, and when you finally got your hands on one, you couldn’t wait to try out all the inks at once. (Oh, and if you were one of those kids that tried to press all the buttons down at the same time to see what would happen, it’s OK, don’t worry. We won’t judge.)

So go ahead and relive a bit of your childhood with the #4C BIC® 4-Color™ Pen! It’s a great way to add a bit of color and nostalgia to any writing session.

Fun Fact: The four ink colors featured in this classic pen have typically been used for different purposes over time. Reds have generally been used in accounting for financial mark-ups or by editors, proofreaders, and teachers. Green is mostly used by managers, especially in civil services, for signatures or audits. Blue, a more common ink, is typically used for signatures to help ensure they are not duplicates or photocopies. Lastly, Black, like Blue, is a general color used for a variety of purposes, but it’s also a popular choice for autographs on objects. (1)
