You can then use the photocopy to chart!>>>

Depending on the age and condition of a piece of textile (or old books),
this is not a good idea. Using a photocopier blasts whatever is being
copied with a flash of light that is very destructive (which is why good
libraries refuse to photocopy old books.) I've read comparisons that one
photocopy is the equivalent of X number of days of full sunlight -- not
something you want to do to something you value. In the long run,
photocopying once is probably much more damaging than using something on a
regular basis.
