DOLLARD-DES-ORMEAUX (QC) — December 5, 2013 — Brother Canada, a leader in products for small offices, announced today that the only label printers in their class to offer wireless printing capability, now support Apple® AirPrint1 wireless printing technology. The QL-710W and QL-720NW, wireless-enabled label printers are designed for printing pre-sized labels for file folders, mailing/shipping labels, name badges and banners.
