sheet of paper, folded in the middle. In color. Here is an example:

Staff writes the content, and then we've traditionally used a commercial
art/design/printing firm. In the interest of our budget, any thoughts on
how I might do this in LaTeX, generating a pdf, and then we'd just have to
pay for the printing? Any packages or strategies you'd recommend? Anyone
else done something similar?

CTAN does have the newspaper package that sounds like a step in the direction of what you'd want to do. After creating your newsletter with that you could then impose the created pages to the proper large size of paper for printing.
