Not strictly relevant to this thread but when I checked the prices of the Dunco easels on Silverprint's website now compared to maybe 6-7 years ago I was astounded at how much they seem to have risen in price since then.
When I first became familiar with Silverprint Martin Reed's comments on Dunco 6-7 years ago he made it clear that they weren't cheap but then again in Martin's words "nor is a Rolls Royce". However my memories of the prices suggest that in real terms the easels were much cheaper than they are now
If Silverprint's prices reflect the market price of these easels then it may be that price has killed volume which in turn leads to a greater price and less volume and so forth into a vicious spiral which eventually kills all sales and thus the product.
I hope not
