About the Product
The MFC-J6530DW Brother printer is packed with features to keep small businesses moving at full speed. Its ingenious design delivers professional A3 printing and scanning in a footprint smaller than an A3 laser device – producing vibrant, high-impact documents without sacrificing too much space.
Despite its A4 footprint, the MFC-J5330DW has the added bonus of A3 printing on top of the A4 scan, copy and fax capabilities. Ideal for the occasional A3 print requests for internal posters, plans, or chart.
