Brother: From Hats to Cartridges and Beyond

Brother is one of the leading brands of printers and other electronics in the world today. Their range of printers has risen to the task in countless homes and businesses, and at Cartridge Hyper we have an extensive range of OEM cartridges, belt units, and drums to keep your Brother printer going.

Brother has surprisingly deep roots, with a history going back to 1908. Throughout the early 20th century, the brothers Masayoshi and Jitsuishi were pioneering the manufacture of sewing machines in Japan. Their products bore the brand “Brother”, reflecting their collaboration.

Through the middle of the century, Brother expanded its range of products into other homes and businesses uses, with items like washing machines and typewriters. Starting in 1971, Brother partnered with Centronics Data Computer Corporation to develop a dot-matrix printer. In 1974, the dot-matrix printer K-2000 was released and found lots of use in industrial applications.

Continued striving and development throughout the last decades of the 20th century saw Brother releasing ever-improved printers and even a karaoke machine. Their first multifunctional colour laser printer, released in 2005, heralded the era of multi-functional printers that we are still in today.
