Multiple tray/copy printing in Windows

I'm looking for a way to achieve the following. I wan't to purchase a printer with 3 paper trays. Each tray will have a different color of paper (white, yellow, and pink) and all will be 8 1/2 x 11. What I would like to do is print an invoice from Quickbooks and have it automaticlaly print 1 page to each tray so I will have 3 copies on diferent colored paper. (I am already doing this with a dot matrix printer and I want to get rid of it). The problem I have is I do not want to have to print each copy separately by selecting each printer 3 times for each separate copy.

Is there a way I can create a virtual printer that when I send a print job to it will send 1 copy to each tray? Is this something I can do in Windows and how would I go about doing it or can you offer any other suggestions?

I think you just have to create 2 printer copies set up each copy and the main printer to print on each tray. and the use this software to do the printing in the 2 printers copies as an automatic task you print on the main printer, you have to set it up in a way that when one finish then the other star and so on.

Currently the Dot Matrix printer uses carbon paper to achieve multiple copies.

Hi again,

You get printers now that let you do that function and that were made to replace the carbon function of dot matrixes.
