Brother International Corporation Expands Its Award-Winning INKvestment Color Device Line Providing Small Businesses Full-Featured Printers That Are Cost-Effective And Business Ready

New Inkjet All-in-Ones Deliver Printing Cost of Less Than a Penny-a-Page in Black and Less Than a Nickel-a-Page in Color(1)

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Brother International Corporation, a leading provider of printing and imaging solutions, builds upon the success of its INKvestment line of color inkjet all-in-ones with two additions to the INKvestment line – the MFC-J5930DW and the MFC-J6935DW. The Brother INKvestment line addresses one of the biggest challenges facing small office and home office (SOHO) users: the high cost of ink. A single INKvestment Super High-yield black cartridge delivers approximately 3,000 pages, for less than $302 and a single INKvestment Super High-yield color cartridge delivers 1,500 pages for less than $202. This translates to printing for less than a penny per page in black and less than a nickel per page in color¹.

Business-Ready Features
The new INKvestment devices provide the capabilities and practical functionality that small businesses need. These reliable and durable devices are backed with unprecedented toll-free technical telephone support for the life of the product.

“Developed to address the challenges faced by the small business user, these additions to the INKvestment portfolio continue to deliver the robust feature set, durability and low cost printing that small offices are looking for in choosing a printer,” according to Phil Lubell, Senior Director, Product Marketing at Brother. “Building upon the success of INKvestment, Brother is continuing to offer high-quality output, advanced business features including printing from a mobile device and Cloud connectivity over a wireless internet connection plus the cost-effective performance that INKvestment is known for.”

The MFC-J5930DW and the MFC-J6935DW include an additional paper tray for extra paper handling flexibility, the convenience and cost savings of automatic duplex printing and single-pass duplex copying/scanning. Both devices can also print up to ledger size (11″ x 17″) documents. The MFC-J6935DW offers the ability to copy and scan ledger size documents directly on the glass.
