"Small business owners have learned that the use of color in documents and presentations cannot only be affordable, it also significantly enhances the impact of their work," said Joyce Brittingham, Senior Product Manager at Brother. The MFC-5460cn and MFC-5860cn are very much in tune with the current needs of small businesses. Featuring innovative designs, both models have a built-in Ethernet interface. These models have print speeds as fast as 30ppm black and 25ppm color as well as an optional high yield black cartridge for reduced printing costs. Since businesses need to print photos, these models also include a PhotoCapture Center feature that includes media card slots for the majority of digital camera memory cards as well as a PictBridge interface. These applications alone are incentive enough for many work-at-home and satellite office professionals to upgrade to one of these printing devices.

When used with Brother's print engine technology, the Innobellaink and paper enables and empowers consumers to accurately reproduce beautiful, vibrant, radiant color images; while simultaneously enhancing image permanence and longevity. Innobella inks and papers were conceived and engineered to become fundamental, operational components of an integrated printing "system". Together, this "system" delivers reliable, consistent and dazzling color reproductions from the first print to the last.
