Looking for a special dispenser for oddly-sized pieces of paper, any ideas?

Hey guys, asking this on behalf of my mom, who is a bank teller.
One of the things they have to do for every transaction is print 3 different types of receipts. This involves picking up one of the papers from a stack, and putting it in a special printer that actually prints the receipt. They have to do this 3 times; once for each thing they have to print.
Not only is this time-consuming, but the papers apparently stick together, making it difficult to grab just one. While the best solution would be for the bank to purchase printers with built-in feed trays, this doesn't seem to be a possiblity, at least in the near future. So we want to solve the problem from the other end, and make the papers easier to dispense.
I thought that there must be something on the market that can dispense oddly shaped pieces of paper, one at a time. It needs to be something that's easily loaded with paper, and it needs to release the blank receipts quickly and only one at a time. The paper is not a roll, but is instead individual slips of paper.
Any ideas here? Something must exist. Failing that, how would I go about making such a device? Thanks in advance.
