We have all been there, we are in the middle of printing out something important when all of the sudden there is a paper jam. I think we can all agree that paper jams are the worst. The good news is that paper jams can be avoided.  Most paper jams are either caused by lack of machine maintenance or poor use and storage of paper.

Paper Precautions


If you work in an office setting chances are you order printer paper in bulk. Printer paper should be stored in a cool and dry place. Humidity causes pages to stick together and jam when loaded into the machine for a print job. Also try to avoid mixing different brands and types of paper together. Although it is hard especially when you get to the end of a package of paper but, different companies manufacture paper differently and those slight differences are enough to throw off your printer mid printing process.

Before feeding your paper onto your printers paper tray make sure that the tray is aligned properly for the size of your paper. Most printers have adjustable printer trays making it possible to print on a variety of paper sizes. If the tray is not adjusted properly your paper can feed crooked leading to a paper jam. Also do not over load your paper tray, try only loading enough paper onto the tray as needed for the current job. It will also help if you take a second to loosen the sheets before loading them into your printer. Shuffle them around to make sure none of the pages are stuck together.

Machine Maintenance


Keeping your printer clean by conducting regular maintenance will help to keep your paper jams to a minimum. Try to get into the practice of weekly cleansing. Residue from ink and toner can accumulate inside of your printer not only causing jams but also reducing the quality of your print jobs. Use a soft brush to gently wipe the inside of your printer to eliminate dust and residue build up. After a paper jam occurs it is a good idea to open your printer lid and inspect the inside of your printer. You will want to look for tiny pieces of paper stuck inside of your printer as a result of the jam. If these pieces are not removed they will cause future paper jams.

If you don’t use your printer weekly or even daily it is a good rule of thumb to print something for the sake of keeping your toner running. This not only keeps the toner from becoming dry and causing jams, but also will ensure that when you do print a document it will be of the highest quality.

When a paper jam does occur make a note of it. Pay attention to how big the print job was, what type and brand of paper was being used as well as the papers size. Over time you might be able to notice a pattern and realize and underlying issue causing the jams.

Celebrated all over the US, Thanksgiving is considered one of America’s favorite holidays. Different areas in the United States have their own way of celebrating Thanksgiving, and families also tend to have their own traditional dishes they like to prepare. No matter how you celebrate or who you celebrate with, one thing remains the same for every household; Thanksgiving is a time to chow down. But that’s the easy part. The difficult part is preparing the feast while watching out for those little hands stretching to get every little bit of delicious nibble they can get their hands on. How do you keep those little hands busy?

Keep them occupied with these fun and creative printable dinner placemats and origami designs, while you prepare a tasty meal.

All you need is:
Thanksgiving Turkey Origami

  • A working printer (with a good amount of ink)
  • Printer Paper (sizes A2 and A4)
  • Glue (kid friendly)
  • Scissors (kid friendly)
  • Coloring materials (crayons, markers, colored pencils, paint, etc.)
  • Children ready to have some fun
  • Someone willing to print out the placemats, as well as the origami designs and receive a whole lot of smiles and hugs in return

Now you’re ready to download the placemats and origami turkey images:

  • Click on the link below to “DOWNLOAD” the placemats and origami designs with the  instructions (this will open a PDF file version)
  • Click “PRINT” to print out the images in your desired size (make sure to print out a substantial amount for everyone and remember that the placemats should be double sided)
  • Once everything is downloaded, printed out and passed around, it’s time to get creative… and very colorful!

We know that kids have big imaginations. We sometimes forget just how much joy and creative fire they can muster. A Thanksgiving themed origami and coloring exercise is a great way to ignite their creative fuel and make good use of your printer and ink cartridges. What fun and unique images will they create?
After they are done coloring their placemats, make sure to set them on the area where they will be sitting for dinner in order to reserve their spot. When everyone is finished recuperating from a full stomach, enjoy some great puzzles and games on the reverse side of the placemats or take the time to form more origami turkeys.

The CompAndSave family puts great emphasis on togetherness and giving thanks for what you have. Remember to keep those the origamis and placemats as a memory of the enjoyable and happy time you shared with your family.

Looking for a new hobby? Check out Papercraft. This is hobby great for children and adults. It allows you to be creative, practice hand eye coordination and use your printer!

Papercraft is the art of taking paper and using it to create three dimensional objects.  A pattern is printed from your home printer onto printer paper. It is advised that you use a heavy paper such as card stock when printing out your patterns.

After your pattern is printed, use crayons, markers or paint to decorate your project as needed. Some patterns can be printed in color and others are black and white leaving the coloring up to you. If using paint or markers allow your pattern enough time to dry before moving on with the project.  

Following the pattern you then proceed to cut out your object. Children are advised to use scissors when cutting out their project, but if you are able to handle using an exacto knife do so. Using an exacto knife will allow you to get a cleaner cut, improving your final outcome.

After the pattern is cut out, apply glue to the glue tabs one at a time and fold your pattern to create a shape glue as you go. The pattern will indicate where you should start this process. If it doesn’t, practice before gluing by using a lightweight tape to hold the object together. Papercraft is unlike the well known practice of Origami which usually only involves folding paper to create and object. It is rare that glue is involved in Origami.
