Hey gang,I've made 4 zines so far and they've all been made with my own drawings and photos and text, but with some images I cut out of magazines I came across, a common practice from what I see.This time I found a whole bunch of images (mostly 1-liners or quotes with very simple backgrounds) and a few drawings/ images, from authors I can't locate (no info leading to the creator) on facebook and on random sites, that I want to use for my new zine but I'm worried about copyright infringment.

I need to print a bunch of mini zines (1 double-sided sheet of paper each) and I'm doing test-prints at home before bringing it to a print shop, but I can't get it to work properly; either I print it to the edge and have to hand-(re)draw the top and side edge, or I have it print it a bit smaller and completely, but not aligned with the back side because the program leaves a small blank space on one side.This zine was created on a normal piece of paper and scanned, so I don't see what the…See More
