  5. Brother UK's new Inkjet Printer is a cut above the rest

Brother UK has launched a new, market-first A4 inkjet printer that features an in-built guillotine for A5 printing.

Business technology solutions provider Brother UK has launched a new, market-first A4 inkjet printer   for small businesses and home users that features an in-built guillotine for simple A5 printing.

The DCP-J1800DW, automatic guillotine enables users to print in A5 without needing pre-cut paper – it cuts A4 paper in half as it prints.

The business says its designed for small businesses for a range of applications, from creating flyers to customer letters or menu printouts at restaurants. But it can also help home users for arts and crafts, bespoke greetings cards and wedding stationary.

The launch follows findings from Brother Industries Ltd Independent Research that revealed nearly half (46%) of inkjet users cut A4 paper into halves before or after printing. Of people who cut A4 paper in half, more than 70% said they did so routinely, and half (51%) said that they did this because they found changing between A4 and A5 paper troublesome. 

The new device represents a sister model to Brother’s recently launched A4 Mini Regular inkjet series. As with the rest of the printers in the range, the DCP-J1800DW model offers print, copy and scan functionality with a 6.8cm LCD touchscreen, in addition to the precise and efficient A4 to A5 cutting feature. It also offers wireless connectivity and can be operated using the Brother Mobile Connect app.

RusselI Brown, head of SOHO sales at Brother UK said: “We’re seeing a growing need small businesses and crafters for a printer that eliminates the leg work of manually cutting A4 paper before or after printing, in order to get A5 printouts. 

“Our latest model offers users the best of A4 and A5 compatibility, providing complete flexibility to create the bespoke craft and business materials they require. Its compact size also makes it an ideal model for a home office, fitting easily on a desk while providing low running costs for home users and to meet the modern needs of hybrid working.”
