There are many supplies that you will need if you plan to pack yourself for a move. One of the essentials is packing paper. Packing paper is a thick, heavy, Kraft-like paper that is perfect for wrapping. It is pliable but strong, allowing you to wrap breakables which will offer protection during the move.
You may be wondering if you can use newspaper or magazine pages when wrapping items instead of purchasing packing paper. In our professional opinion, the answer is no.
Newspaper and magazine pages have ink on them that can bleed onto your belongings. You may think that as long as the paper stays dry that it will not bleed. Unfortunately, this is not true. Even dry paper and ink can bleed when pressed against certain belongings. Additionally, newspaper and magazines were not designed to protect like packing paper. It is not as thick or pliable and therefore does not reinforce delicate items like packing paper will.
