hello. this is an interesting question and the answer will be subject to debate. from a copyright standpoint you are doing nothing wrong because you are not reproducing any images since the customer is supplying the image and even still it would only be a single copy of that particular work. from the trademark standpoint, technically you may be violating because you are creating a product that features trademarked names/characters/logos without permission. so you have a little risk but practically speaking the risk is very minimal because it sounds like you are not making more than one or a few copies of each item, i.e. the material changes with each customer...so you are not likely to be on the radar for infringement. so while it might not be 100% legal or risk-free, the chances of anything happening are very low. now, if you advertise online with images from Disney etc. then your exposure and risk goes up substantially, so you should avoid that.
you're welcome, best of luck and please rate me so that I get credit
