How about defining pagestyles? Here's some pseudo-code for you. (I do not
usually use fancyhdr, so I would have to research the commands to define
headings, and I'm too lazy to do so right now.)

% define the header block, including positioning of the graphics:
% define the header block without the graphics:
% define pagestyles
\makeatletter  % <-- needed if not in style file
% pagestyle FirstPage:
\def\ps at FirstPage{
\FancyHdrClearHeadCommand                %<-- replace by correct command
}
% pagestyle StandardPage:
\def\ps at StandardPage{
\FancyHdrClearHeadCommand                %<-- replace by correct command
}
\makeatother   % <-- needed if not in style file

% after begin document:
% first activate fancyhdr's capabilities:
\pagestyle{fanchdr}  %<-- replace by correct command
% now use the header blocks defined above:
\pagestyle{StandardPage}
\thispagestyle{FirstPage}

Disclaimer: I took this code from a working but very old document, which I know
was created by a person who tends to hack things together with a genius for
making things work and no eye at all for style or ease of usage. So there
probably exist better ways to do this...

Hope that helps anyways,

Susan
