Quaker Tapestry Copyright
Image Reproduction Requests

Great care was taken in the production of the original tapestry panels and consequently we take great care over how the Quaker Tapestry appears in published material. Therefore, in line with most other organisations, we have precise rules as to how and where panel images can be reproduced. If you would like to reproduce an image of the panels you need to apply to us for a digital copy of an image.

Please allow up to 3 weeks for your Copyright Application to be completed.

The general principles we apply are:

1. Copyright
The copyright for the tapestry panels lies and remains with the Quaker Tapestry. If you are given permission to reproduce images of the panels this will be in the form of a limited licence, the extent of which will be clearly stated based on your application.

2. Permission
Permission must ALWAYS be requested BEFORE an image is reproduced.
We need to be satisfied that the Quaker Tapestry will be represented in a suitable way which is in sympathy with the values and ethos that it represents.

3. Charges – reproduction
We generally make a charge for limited reproduction licences based on the requested use.
This varies according to who is making the request, whether or not it is a commercial venture, how wide the circulation will be, the overall size, colour or black & white, etc. It is fair to point out that commercial use will almost always be charged for, with a sliding scale down to complete waiving for suitable applicants.  As a guide, commercial charges are usually £70.00 + vat per image supplied as a high resolution digital image (300 dpi at A4) CMYK file for print or RGB lower resolution for web use.

4. Charges – application
In addition to the reproduction fee, which is variable, there is a minimum application fee of £20.00 + vat. This contributes to the cost of administering the application.

5. Attribution
We always require any reproduced image to carry the label © Quaker Tapestry
in a legible point size and immediately adjacent to each image reproduced.

6. Publicity
As a general rule, the more a reproduction fee is reduced the more publicity material we require to be included with the images. The extent of this ranges from a short mention of the location of the permanent exhibition to a paragraph outlining the origins and aim of the Quaker Tapestry.
This requirement will be clearly stated on the reproduction licence that you receive.

7. Image Integrity
In order to preserve the artistic integrity of the panels no alteration of any image is allowed.
We do not allow the panels to be reproduced other than as they appear in the image supplied.
Specifically, the colours (if reproduced in colour) must not be altered and the design elements must not be moved in relation to each other. If a small section of the panel is to be reproduced then this should be made clear in the request.
