TO DELIVER LOWER TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP AND UNMATCHED MOBILE AND CLOUD
TECHNOLOGIES FOR SMALL BUSINESSES AND SMALL OFFICES
New Line of Class-Leading, Low TCO All-in-One Printers Make Printing for Pocket Change a Reality with
less than a Penny-per-Page in Black and less than a Nickel-per-Page in Color1
BRIDGEWATER, N.J., October 17, 2016—Small business owners face many challenges as they grow their
companies. Brother knows printing should not be one of them and today is expanding its award-winning
INKvestment line of color inkjet all-in-one printers to deliver convenient printing with a low total cost of
ownership (TCO). These latest additions to Brother’s line of INKvestment printers, the MFC-J5830DW
and MFC-J6535DW, are designed specifically to meet the needs of small businesses or small offices and
combine high-quality printing, cloud services, and mobile functionality, coupled with an intuitive user
interface. Effortless to implement and use, INKvestment printers enable business owners to spend less
time on day-to-day operations and more time focusing on business goals. Equipped with up to two
years’ worth of ink in the box, Brother’s MFC-J5830DW XL and MFC-J6535DW XL INKvestment printers
also ease the worry of running out of ink.2
Reliable Printing for Pennies and Nickels
Small businesses depend on efficient products to help them increase productivity, and the new MFCJ5830DW and MFC-J6535DW are designed to be easy-to-use, fast, reliable, and affordable. Brother’s
new INKvestment all-in-one devices help address challenges faced by small businesses including the high
cost of printing and the inconvenience of running out of ink. Small businesses can spend less money for
more pages with INKvestment printers and cartridges – black prints for less than a penny and color
prints for less than a nickel each.1 INKvestment super high-yield cartridges deliver approximately 3,000
pages for black and 1,500 pages for color prints.3
XL Versions Offer Even More Value
According to the 2016 Brother Business Survey, 43 percent of small businesses use a printer, on average,
10 or more times per day. For customers with large print volumes, the XL versions include additional ink
cartridges in the box, helping eliminate the need to purchase ink for up to two years.2
Designed for Growing Businesses
These printers offer the features and functionality a growing business needs including cloud and mobile
connectivity, a sturdy and reliable device, and dedicated phone support for the life of the product. They
are designed to print ledger size documents, and the MFC-J6535DW also offers the flexibility to copy
and scan ledger size documents directly on the glass.
Two supplementary models, the MFC-J5930DW and MFC-J6935DW, also include an additional paper
tray for added paper handling flexibility, the convenience of automatic two-sided copying/scanning, and
NFC connectivity. For small offices and businesses looking for convenient, auto replenishment of ink, all
of the new models are compatible with Amazon Dash Replenishment, helping eliminate the need for last
minute trips to the store.
“The top-of-mind concerns of small businesses when it comes to printers are the cost of ink, cartridge
yields, and the durability of their printer,” said Phil Lubell, Senior Director, Product Marketing, Brother
International Corporation. “This expanded line of Brother INKvestment all-in-ones was developed
specifically for small businesses. With its high-quality printing, rich feature package, durable build, and
