Oh! I thought of something else…I used to "trick" the printer into printing by selecting a paper size it actually had in its set menu that was slightly bigger or smaller than what I was using.  Then I fed it in manually.

My only problem was that this often made the printer go nutty and it would print out a sheet perfectly nicely…and then it would insist that my paper size (in the printer) didn’t match the document size (layout) — which it didn’t — and would restart the print job.  One time, I kept pushing the manual "go" button over and over ’cause I thought that it was printing my 30 sheets one at a time manually…no, it was printing my first sheet over and over and over every time I pushed.  I ended up with about 50 sheets before I realized, dang, this seems like more paper than 30… 

If you don’t have to do too many, maybe this would work?  I do recommend cutting up some scratch paper so you don’t waste your nice expensive stuff.  Also, you might try adjusting the settings in your printer preferences dialogue — sometimes you can choose options for glossy or slick paper that help the paper feed better.
