Adapting Resources

Here is an overview of the process to reproduce or adapt NC Resources:

Step 1: Email our staff to request permission to reproduce or adapt NC resource(s) at

Step 2: NC will share a “Permission to Adapt” form asking you to indicate the resource(s) of interest, the changes you would like to make, and how you plan to use the adapted resource(s).

Step 3: Once the “Permission to Adapt” form has been submitted and reviewed, NC will let you know if your request is approved or not. If your request is approved, you will receive a “Letter of Agreement” from NC. In this letter you will be invoiced for:

  • An adaptation fee of your plan to modify the resource in any way. This fee varies depending on the resource and the extent of reproduction/adaptation.
  • A transfer fee if you need access to our designer files.
  • A revision fee if your adaptation requires significant input from NC staff. This fee will vary depending on the extend of NC’s involvement.

Step 4: Revew the letter and return a signed copy to NC.

Step 5: Once a signed letter of agreement is received, NC can provide you with the electronic designer source files of the resource(s), if requested. These designer source files will be in the format the resources were originally produced. You may need assistance from a designer or professional printer to manipulate these designer source files. Any costs and arrangements regarding formatting or editing of these designer source files are born solely by the organization making the changes.

All adapted resources must be approved by NC prior to being produced/distributed and must include the approved acknowledgement text, as stated in the letter of agreement.

All costs for revisions and printing are born solely by the organization making the changes.
