Trim around door jams

Hello all,
I just bought a house, the old owner had installed laminate floors, but didn't cut the door jams (arh!). The flooring just stops 3/8" or so from the jam. Looks really great. Any advice on how to fix it? Trim, or something, to cover it and give it a finished look? I really can't pull 1600 feet of this up and replace it...sadly.
Thanks for all the help!

Depending on the direction it was laid, you could remove the first row and install new if you have extra, and the planks are laid parallel with the jams. If they are not parallel, you could experiment installing some quarter round in this area.

Buy somemore of the same flooring and get after it.

I have been asked on many occasions to come it and save a handyman special. It ain't easy, but the looks afterwards met the expectaions, way better then the handyman special did.

I ususally ended up costing them more for me to fix it then they paid the handyman to install it.
