The documents are transcribed into Braille using one of our advanced Braille Embossers. The final documents are produced on high quality Braille paper and can be comb bound if required, so pages can be turned easily.

We aim to send the documents to you as soon as possible. Most documents are usually dispatched within 48 hours. However, this time can vary depending on how large the order is, but we will endeavour to keep you fully informed on how the order is progressing.
