Save Sunday Funnies for Gift Wrap?

I wanted to save money on Christmas wrapping paper. I started saving the Sunday comics to wrap children's gifts. However, when I went to use the comics, they had faded and are not pretty any more. How could I keep the colorful comics from fading?

what i recommend is the minute you harvest them you put an acrylic spray sealer over them

or use matte medium and with a brush and very carefully cover in 2 or 3 layers over the newsprint

matte medium is a wonderful product and a good investment

these steps will ensure colorfastness and also make the paper less brittle

Air fades colors. Put in a dark room that is not humid.
