With Google Drive, you can send a file with the "Make a copy" link to others while keeping the original. The copy is then stored on the recipient's drive where it can be edited as desired.
This guide applies to Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drawing Files. We will use docs, but the procedure for each service is essentially the same.

Launch the Google Docs homepage and open a file that you want to share with someone to make a copy create. Right-click the URL in the address bar and click Copy.
. Then open Gmail and create a new message for the recipient. Paste the URL into the body of the message with Ctrl + V (Windows / Chrome OS) or Cmd + V (macOS), click it to bring up the More menu, and then click Modify.
At the bottom of the URL, change "Edit" to "Copy," and then click "OK." to save the web address.
Once the URL has been edited and embedded as desired, click Submit.
 Before the email is actually sent, Google asks you to grant the recipient access to the file. Check the permissions and click Submit again.
. When the other person receives the e-mail and clicks the link, it will be redirected to a page where they can make a copy of the file, which will then be saved to their drive.
