I am a proponent of end rolls. They are unprinted remnants of the huge rolls that our daily newspapers are printed on. I got a huge roll when we started packing up to move almost 2 years ago. I paid $4 for 2 inches. That is 2 inches of paper thickness from the tube to the outside. I use it for everything!

Perfect use for an end roll

Perfect use for an end roll

  1. Pack up items securely. No print tranfer.
  2. Drop cloth. Paint on it. Draw on it. What ever! Cheap as can be!
  3. Pattern drafting.
  4. You can use some for starting a fire since they are without ink.
  5. Kids drawing paper.
  6. Wrapping paper. Decorate it and then wrap it up!
  7. Put down over carpet for some light protection. Works well for wet cats and the hoard of shoes coming in from lawn mowing.
  8. What can you use it for?

Here is a sample of drawstring pants drafted onto the end roll. A little colored duct tape was needed to complete the crotch seam width.

Get you some at your local newspaper printer. They usually have tons and it is cheap, cheap, cheap! They are happy when you want it.
