A pair of wireless earbuds and some BIC® Gel-ocity® Quick Dry Gel Pens will have you all set for the new semester.


Summer? What summer?

The weather may have made it feel like we didn’t have a summer at all, but it’s officially at an end.

And for hundreds of thousands of students, that means it’s time to think about going back to college.

Under current circumstances, there is lots for students to think about to equip them for a return to college life, but we still need to take care of the essentials.


When it comes to taking notes at lectures and drawing some doodles when the attention span inevitably dwindles, you won’t do better than the BIC® Gel-ocity® Quick Dry Gel pens.

The perfect instrument for fast thinkers, the BIC® Gel-ocity® pen offers a new way to experience writing.

Using its ultra-fast drying ink, the gel pen glides smoothly across the page avoiding those irritating smudges, drips and leaks, resulting in a vibrant and concise writing style. The optimal choice for those who like to write at a fast pace, the pen will come in very handy when it comes to those last-minute cramming sessions.


Available in 13 classic and vibrant writing colours - blue, black, red, green, purple, turquoise, pink, orange, light orange, lime green, light purple, dark pink and sea green – a full-grip barrel on the pen provides ultimate comfort and durability to help avoid that all-too-well-known hand ache.

And don’t worry left handers, the pen has got you covered, with that ultra-fast drying ink avoiding those horrible messy smudges that get all over the page, as well as your hands!

The BIC® Gel-ocity® Quick Dry Gel Pens will be available from most major retailers in different pack sizes starting from €2.99. You can buy them online at Eason's here and Dunnes Stores here.

The kind folks at BIC® have given JOE a set of Gel-ocity® Quick Dry Gel Pens to give away and, even better, they’re throwing in a pair of white wireless earbuds (worth €180) to make up the ultimate back to college kit.
