Can I edit a signed business contract?

I am starting a business and am in the process of signing a contract with a vendor. I am concerned that some of the details in the contract may need to be changed after it is signed. I am wondering if it is possible to edit a signed business contract or if I would need to create an entirely new contract.

It is almost always possible to amend a signed contract, but, of course, all signatories to the original contract would also need to sign any amendment. If, however, you foresee things you may want to sign later down the road, it'd be best to negotiate changes to the original contract, rather than amending an existing one....for one thing, what if the other signatories don't agree to your proposed amendment(s)?
