Never use paper, so no idea of print? Paper wicks away moisture. I would never wrap in paper. Just plastic.

Pete - I was actually talking about the bags newspapers come in. Have heard folks mention using them, but just curious about ink.

Never used them, but wouldn't worry about ink.

Yeah, it kinda sucks. I've got a beautiful greenhound mount with a damn Doonesbury cartoon on its breast! :lol3:
