Screen printing is performed using a mesh screen, where the areas of the design are open and the non-design areas are blocked out.

When choosing a pen, it is important to consider, not only whether the pen looks good, but also if it will be comfortable for the user when they are writing with it. Users like a pen that writes smoothly and feels good in their hand and allows for quick writing or scribbling. Some people will prefer pens with a rubber grip as seen with the Bic Clic Stic Grip, Bic Grip Roller, and Carnival Pens. Alternatively, some prefer a pen with a triangular shape like the Bic Tri Stic Pens which have a nice feel in the user's hands. Still yet, some prefer a streamlined simple pen; the Bic Round Stic Pens is one of the most basic promotional pens, yet it is extremely comfortable, writes well, and is one of the most popular pens in the industry.
Choosing the Best Design for your Pen
When personalizing your pens, it is important to select a design that connects with your company/brand and is also attractive. With the Bic pens, you can select a body color and a trim color, which is nice for companies, organizations, or schools that have 2-color logos. For example, if your school's colors are blue and yellow, consider using a blue body with a yellow trim and a yellow imprint.
When you customize your pen, keep in mind that the imprint area is very small. It is usually best to avoid extremely complicated designs in tight spaces as small details can fill in and the overall design can be hard to understand at a small size. Choose bold design elements that will stand out in the small imprint area of the pen.
Many of our Bic promotional pens offer the option of an imprint on both the barrel and/or the pocket clip. Sometimes it can be a nice touch to include a logo on the barrel and a saying, brand name, or message on the pocket clip for added branding.
Regardless of the design you choose, we require vector artwork to print your pens. Vector artwork is typically a file with one of the following extensions: .ai, .eps, or .pdf. The tricky thing is that not all files with those extensions are vector files. If you have any questions about your artwork, please reach out to us.
