Sorry about that. Yes I have just checked with another U.K. site I belong to and it seems that Martin Reed has handed over ownership to someone called Clive Matlock but as of last April/May Martin was still employed in a consultancy capacity. It may be that Silverprint is selling off its stock of Dunco easels and hasn't renewed contact with Dunco for many weeks/months, I suppose.

It might be worth asking to speak to Mr Matlock, explaining the situation and asking if he will contact Martin Reed on your behalf.
Given the long association between Martin Reed and Dunco then if anyone can help you to make contact with Dunco it would be Martin
I suppose we may have the face the possibility that Dunco has simply gone out of business, in which case you may be stuck but if this were to be the case I'd have expected someone to have heard about this. At the very least Martin may know the full story of what has happened at Dunco.
Equally I'd have thought it important for Silverprint to know what has happened. If someone buys one of Silverprint's remaining stock of Dunco easels and it breaks within the normal guarantee period then what does Silverprint do to help the customer???
