Inside this issue

B takes a look into the market for low-cost, disposable everyday products, prompting readers to realize how easily these products are overlooked in our daily lives.

BIC products can be classified into stationery products, lighters, and shavers. This section introduces the features of BIC’s most iconic products.
BIC produces mostly low-cost disposable items albeit with functions which far exceed those of other brands. In this section, B disassembles several BIC products to take a closer look into their functions.
BIC products are affordable, but their functions and designs are comparable to any high-end goods in the same category. BIC’s excellence in quality becomes even more evident when compared to similar low-cost items.
This section surveys the office supplies of various companies where BIC products are used. Popular office supplies are, of course, affordable, yet high in quality.
BIC products are not collector’s items, so they are often used along with products from other brands. In this section, we ask BIC users what other brands they choose and listen to their stories.
