Around 10 years ago my girlfriend and I hosted a harry potter themed Halloween party and as part of the activities we created a card game to play. As the hobby graphic design and game designer i was at the time, I made the cards, but we just printed the out on cardstock and put the whole thing together very amateurish. We are married now and I decided as an extra gift for her this year I would revisit the game, update it with some of the new content from the books etc...

my issue is that I pulled a great deal of the card art from movie stills and random fan art i found 10 years ago. I wasn't concerned with reprinting things because I was croping the crap out of everything and printing it on a crummy bubble jet. I want to use a service like printer studio and I am concerned that If i submit the new card art they may not print it because some of it is clearly from movie promotion images and random googled images. I of course don't plan on using any of this as a potential commercial product, and even if i did want to make the game into something i could publish or crowdfund, i would overhall the whole thing to avoid the harry potter content all together.

The question is, for a single print of the card set, will they make the cards or cancel my order?

As long as you have no intent to sell the cards there should be no issue. I haven't heard of any issues with printers like this, but a quip about personal use and no intent to sell may be useful just in case.

I've printed with Printer's Studio twice and I think it is unlikely they will give you any hassle. They do ask you if you have permission or own copyright on all the materials, but I think it's pretty much on the honor system as to whether you actually do or not.
