5 Reasons You Should Use Newsprint Paper For Your Next Move

Moving can be an incredibly exciting experience, but it can come with a great deal of stress. While you may be looking forward to starting a new life in a new home, what you may not be looking forward to is packing and unpacking all of your belongings. By having the right tools and supplies for the job, however, this process can be made seamless, easy and efficient.

One of the most important supplies to have when preparing for your move or putting things in storage is newsprint paper. Newsprint paper is a supply that many people don’t think about. You will realize just how useful it is once you begin packing away your belongings.

What Is Newsprint Paper?

Newsprint paper is a clean and affordable paper that has many uses, especially in the world of packaging. It’s thinner than regular paper, making it incredibly versatile, and is recommended in large quantities for your move. Here are just a few of the many benefits of newsprint paper.

1. Cost-Effective

Newsprint paper is incredibly affordable in comparison to other kinds of paper. You can get huge rolls of it, averaging out between one and a half to three cents per square foot. In comparison, using standard paper, bubble wrap, cardboard or any other packing solutions will be more expensive.

2. It Doesn’t Transfer Ink

It may be easy to just grab some old newspapers to perform the same function. After all, it’s the same material, it is just as affordable, and you may have an abundance of old newspapers you have not gotten around to throwing out yet. However, the biggest issue with using newspapers is how easily ink can be transferred.

Covered top to bottom in ink, wrapping your possessions in newspaper or even using it for void filling will leave huge black stains on your hands, staining your possessions in turn. Even if you wear gloves, wrapping items like books or other things with dry surfaces are sure to get stained with horrible lines of black ink. Newsprint paper in comparison is clean and stain-free.

3. Multiple Uses

Due to its thin and flexible nature, newsprint paper offers a variety of different uses when it comes to the packing process. You can wrap your possessions tightly in it, offering an extra, albeit thin, layer of protection; if this is done multiple times, however, you create an effectively impenetrable cushion that protects your most prized belongings.

It can also be used either outside or inside products to help keep their shape, such as books or things made of rubber or plastic.

It can also act as void fill which can be easily stuffed into the excess space of each box to ensure your items don’t roll around or that certain things are kept separate from others. Using newsprint paper is great for void fill if you are packing away glasses that you don’t want smashing into each other.

4. Recyclable & Reusable

Made from 100% recyclable materials, newsprint paper is not only economically friendly but, it is also environmentally friendly. It’s fully compostable too, meaning if it’s accidentally thrown out, it will not cause any long-term damage to the planet. Additionally, it’s completely reusable which will help you save extra money.

If you are putting something into storage such as Christmas decorations that you know you will be taking out and storing away time and time again, it makes sense to keep your newsprint paper.

5. Available In Different Sizes

Versatile in more ways than one, newsprint paper is available in any size you could dream of. You can buy it in pre-cut sheets or as a roll in any length and width you want. The typical width for rolls are between 12 and 48 inches and will often provide you around 120 feet of material to use as you see fit.
