Magazine B Pens Bundle:
German foundation pen maker LAMY first started as an ORTHOS pen manufacturer in 1930 and established its own brand in1948. In 1966, LAMY introduced its signature product, LAMY 2000, which was inspired by BAUHAUS. The product bears the fountain pen manufacturer’s initial impetus for its design. The writing instrument maker has continuously been collaborating with designers outside of its organization and operating its in-house manufacturing facility in Heidelberg, where the company is headquartered. LAMY offers a wide range of products, which are “designed to be easy-to-use for anyone,” by introducing its high-quality products at reason- able prices.
Started in 1906 as a fountain pen manufacturer, Montblanc has produced quality writing instruments using its great sense of balance and exquisite technology. As the era of fountain pens diminished with the rise of ballpoint pens, Montblanc transformed itself into a luxury brand with its premium fountain pens and later expanded to fine leather goods and watches. The brand’s unique ability to impart the elegant imagery of its flagship product to other product lines is still proving successful into the 2010s, despite changes in luxury goods distribution structures and different tastes of the ascending millennial consumer group.
The first disposable ballpoint pen in the market, BIC Cristal was introduced in 1950 by a French consumer product brand, BIC. Based on a coherent set of ethos to offer high-quality products paired with affordability, BIC has been securing its position in the market by focusing on disposable consumer products.
The Magazine B Pens bundle helps readers understand each of these brands in the context of what consumers need, and what they want, when putting pen to paper.
