Are old newspapers worth keeping?

How do you display old newspaper clippings?
Clippings can be stored upright or flat in folders and boxes. Do not intermingle newspaper clippings with letters, photographs, or other documents since the impurities in the newsprint will cause staining in adjacent materials.
How do I keep my paper from turning yellow?

Why is framing so expensive?
According to Mark Klostermeyer, a member of the Professional Picture Frames Association, it’s the sheer amount of mattings, moldings, glazings, and frames a shop provides that drives up prices. The fewer options a business offers, the more able they are to order in bulk, therefore cutting down costs.

How do you flatten prints for framing?
Remove the print from the tube and unroll it. Lay it out, image side up, on a flat surface. With a sheet of smooth paper still covering the print’s image, place a few, smooth, flat, heavy objects (such as books) on the ends and middle of the print. Let it sit for a couple more hours.
Can a newspaper be ironed?
The point of ironing a newspaper is not as ridiculous as it sounds. Many butlers and 5 star hotels still practice this age-old tradition. Not only does it eliminate creases and make the paper crisp and easier to read, but the hot iron dries the ink so the reader does not end up with dark smudged fingertips.
Is it possible to Uncrease paper?
If you don’t have the time or iron to flatten it, as shown above, a simple way to get most/some of the wrinkles and creases out is to repeatedly roll the paper over the side of a desk or table. It might not expunge all mistakes but will do the job for a few wrinkles. This change should revert when the paper has cooled.
