Yes, but it depends on how many. A few present no problem. A large amount are difficult to disguise and a reprint would be the best option. We charge £2 a page for changes

A soft bound book has the pages glued together and covered in cloth, like a paperback book
Simple binding has the pages glued together, with a see-through plastic on the front, card on the back and a strip on the spine

We have four speeds of service for binding – 2 days, Next day, 5 hours and 2 hours. These services are available at all times – no booking required.

Binding prices do not include printing costs (every dissertation has got a different number of pages we have to print; also there is a price difference between colour and b&w pages)
"I'm very pleased with my new binding machine. It works great and was shipped out very quickly! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Clary."
