Sydney, Australia – 04 October 2022: Allowing users to take home printing to the next level, leading printer manufacturer Brother International Australia has today announced the launch of the INKvestment Smart Home range.

Combining high-quality printing with innovative mobile technology, affordability, and exceptional value, the two new inkjet printers are the perfect fit for any home office.

With the rising cost of living, Australian households are more cost-conscious than ever before, especially for those working from home. To keep operating costs to a minimum, the DCP-J1200W XL comes with up to two years of ink in-box1, and the DCP-J1200W with up to one year of ink in-box1, providing customers with premium ink and exceptional value.

Pricing for the range also starts at just $199 for the DCP-J1200W, providing a feature-rich printing solution, without breaking the bank.

Designed for the modern home office, both printers in the new range offer a compact form to easily fit into any workspace. The INKvestment Smart Home range also provides the flexibility required for hybrid work utilising Brother’s user-friendly Mobile Connect App. With the entire printing experience driven from the app, you can print from anywhere at any time, store and retrieve scanned documents, and monitor ink usage from your phone.

Users can also stay productive with print speeds of up to 16ppm and a paper tray with a capacity of up to 150 sheets to print more copies, quicker, and without interruption. Free product support for the lifetime of the product also helps users be confident that Brother will remain at your side.

On the new range, Stephanie Halbisch, Marketing Specialist at Brother International Australia, said: “We are extremely excited to release the INKvestment Smart Home range given the rate at which our day-to-day lives have changed over the past year.
