My preference would be a all-in-one but that is not a deal breaker. It can also only be black and white if necessary. I'm trying not to break the bank with this as it will take a few months to get rolling and obviously we want to minimize start up costs. Soooo...Any advice. I contacted Epson and HP and both have told me they don't have anything for me.

Try Office Max or Office Depot.
This one might do the trick. It sounds like it has 2 feeder trays. I'm not sure if you'd consider $350 breaking the bank or not.
That might do the trick. I was hoping for about $200 but figured about $300 so $350 is not outside the realm of possibility. You wouldn't think it would be that tough to find.

I have had very good experiences with a previous generation of the 3130cn.

The less the upfront cost of the printer, usually means the higher the long run cost of owning it. Lower cost printers tend to use much smaller ink buckets that have to be replaced more frequent and cost more.
I don't know what you expect the monthly print load to be, but I would do a cost compare at 10,000 pages before making a purchase.
Also, the same can usually be said laser verses inkjet. Laser tends to have a higher upfront cost but lower overall maintenance and refill cost. But, again it depends on your expected print load.
Lastly, depending on where you live, you can find places where you can lease printers with refill contracts. And while its not the cheapest route, it tends to be worth it if you can haggle your way into a good deal. Again, thinking the long term cost, not the up front cost. We worked a deal that included the ink refills at an extremely low rate in exchange for an acceptable monthly maintenance contract fee that also replaces our printer with a new one every so often.

All the pages within a pdf document will print all on one size paper unless you go in and manually print each page from the computer to the printer with its corresponding page size. I don't know of a way to do that automatically in Acrobat/Word/Keynote/Indesign/Quark. Alternatively, you can just print the whole document in the larger paper size and have each page centered within the paper.
