BIC Marking Pens Review [2024]

BIC marking pen review

Here's a BIC Marker review of a set of permanent fineliners. BIC marking pens are acid free, and come in a variety of colors and packs to choose from. The high intense colors make them ideal for teachers and hobbyists.

The fast drying ink will not smudge and goes onto the paper evenly. Let's go through the BIC marking pen review together.

This is a set of BIC Marking pens. These markers have an ultra-fine tip so they will be good to use for drawing or lettering.

These markers have really fun names like Key Lime and Playful Purple. Don't you just love it when companies name their markers?

It is also helpful for those of you who like to swatch out your new pen sets. Pen swatching makes it easier to find a certain pen and is especially helpful when you have a huge collection.

BIC Marking Pen Tests

1. Smooth Writing Test

The first test was to see how smooth these markers write and if they will bleed through the paper. They are ok for smoothness and they go along the paper nicely. 

The Blue Skies Blue and Fandango Pink had some spreading as the ink was drying.


2. Dryness Test

Next was a dryness test to see how long they take to dry and if they smudge. They get a 5-star mark for this because they dried instantly. So if you need a super quick drying marker, you’ll like that a lot.


3. Highlighter Test

And another test we like to do is a highlighter test to see how they will react or smudge. These markers get a 5 star for this because each color stayed put without any smearing at all.

The BIC marking pens are best for thick paper as they will bleed onto the other side.

They did have major ghosting on the other side so beware of that if you are thinking of using them for your bullet journals or planners and you don't want color coming through the other side of a page.

If you need pens and markers that will not ghost in your planners, read up on some of the best fineliners for journals.

These pens color nicely and will give you vibrant colors. Each marking pen is pretty smooth on this plain white paper and the markers weren't leaving heavy lines.

So if you make your own stickers or like to make floral doodles like roses they will be great for that. The colors are nice and bold.

The BIC marking pens write nicely on glass. They were smooth and the colors showed up really well.

To clean the glass you just need some soapy water and the inks come off easily.

You can also use the BIC marking pens on metal. Here's a pendant tray that we colored a flower on. The colors showed up nicely and they worked great for this.

  • Intense colors
  • These dry quickly
  • Can write on metal or glass
  • Are permanent
  • Glide smoothly onto the paper

    We hope this review helped so that you can make a better buying decision whether these markers are right for you.

    If you have a large pen and marker collection, it’s very helpful to swatch them out when you purchase a new set. That way you can flip through your swatch book to find the perfect pen for the project you are working on.
