I was glad I was able to pick a new, probably not MIC, sketchbook from the local bookstore. Cost me around 12 euros. Still wrapped in its plastic when above photo was taken. It came with the writing labels but no dreaded MiC stickers, signs or other. Inside the backcover, the blue ribbon had the markings QP014EN.
Don’t know what they mean though. If anybody has a clue, drop a note.
