Are brother printers inkjet or laser?

We will answer your question on Brother printers specifically of course, we wouldn't do that to you, but if you are here on the broader question of inkjet vs laser printers our blog covers it in-depth. Now, let's get to Brother!

Brother laser printers

We stock two Brother laser printers, though we supply printer ink for many more. They are the Brother HL-L2375DW mono laser printer, A4 and the Brother MFC-L2710DW multifunctional Laser, A4. Brother laser printers use toner to print, this ink is heated onto the paper and it's a perfect method for a home office or for any business with heavy printing needs. Toner cartridges are also longer lasting because they aren't liquid, so don't dry out over time, meaning you can stock up at a time best for you!

Toner is a fine dye power that is melted onto the paper. Unlike ink, which is sprayed onto paper through fine jets, toner creates a crisp, resilient and long-lasting image. 

Toner can hold a static charge, which allows it to be transferred to paper by an electrostatically charged drum unit. From there, the substance is fused to the surface of the paper with heated rollers. This printing process was initially used in photocopiers, but the technology was modified to create the first laser printer in the late 1960s. Though things have advanced, modern laser printers essentially use the same method. official website - do laser printers use ink or toner
