Types of mismatched supplies

Counterfeit Inks or Toners

Counterfeit supplies are often advertised as a cheaper option, and may look like genuine Brother inks and toners. However, these supplies may be poorly manufactured and may result in inferior printouts or even damage your printer.

Compatible Inks or Toners

Compatible supplies are made by other companies and can work with printers from various manufacturers. These supplies may not fit well in the printer and this may result in poor print quality.

Now meet the perfect match.

Manufactured to the highest standards, genuine Brother supplies ensure optimised performance and component protection so you can enjoy greater peace of mind.

Hardware Protection

Brother supplies are developed in conjunction with hardware to maximise printer productivity. Extensive testing is conducted to ensure optimum performance and hardware protection.

Trouble-free Printing

Brother genuine ink (Innobella™) and Brother’s Chemically Produced Toner (CPT) are specially formulated with anti-clogging qualities, ensuring that you achieve smooth and consistent printouts.

Warranty Assured

Warranties may not cover damages or malfunctions arising from the usage of non-genuine supplies. Subsequent component replacements or repairs may be costly.

Professional Print Quality
