Quick tip: Avoid wrapping in newspaper
Newspaper can become damaging in heat or during long term storage. In the summer. temperatures in the back of a moving van, or even the back of trailer where the sun is beating down on items can cause the ink on the newspapers to transfer to your belongings. This same ink transfer can happen if belongings are stored for an extended period.
Instead, use acid-free tissue paper, or contact your local newspaper and ask if they sell end rolls. These are the ends of paper rolls. They have not been printed on, and are normally very affordable. However, if you live somewhere without a printing press (like Amarillo), head to your local packing supply store and buy packing paper. FYI, you can find this paper in bundles at Sparky’s.
