Default Stacking/storing newly painted cabinet doors

I have about 18 cabinet doors I'm spraying and after they're done, I need to bring them back to the job - there wasn't any place to set them up to spray there so I had to bring them home.

The owner's wife tossed out the hardware (bad move) and they haven't purchased new hardware yet, so I can't hang the cabinet doors just yet.

I don't want to stack them on each other without some protective barrier - the paint on paint will probably cause some parts to stick and lift the paint.

I thought about using news paper but I'm worried the ink might react with the paint. Can I use that wrapping paper used for dinning plates and China? I'm not sure of the exact name for it, but it comes is somewhat large sizes. Or anything else you'd suggest?

Rbriggs82 right

few years ago we painted 15,000 ( yes 15,000 ) hotel doors @ warehouse
we took off pallets, lined 300 - 400 up in rows, sprayed & next day loaded back on pallets to be shipped to Disney

wax paper between door and worked great

I don't ever stack doors, but rather wrap them in heavy paper and stand them on end leaning up against the wall or side of the van. Puts less pressure on the fresh paint.

I use cardboard it also helps in transport to keep from banging together.

I use wax paper.

Cashmere sheets cut to the appropriate size also works.

Wax. But RepaintFL was probably using Breakthrough with the batch he mentioned I dunno how that would work with other paints especially Advance!

If the coat is still fresh and you need to transport, wax paper around each and stack but separate each layer with a blanket or dropcloth...something soft.
