Set standard Outlook signature for all users

We have SBS 2003 Standard Edition as DC plus Server 2003 64-bit setup as a TS to provide remote access.
We are currently using GFI MailEssentials to provide a standard disclaimer to all outgoing emails. this only adds the disclaimer to emails as they leave the Exchange Server, so internal emails don't get the disclaimer (which is fine).
Next we want to standardise the Outlook signature format for all users. Each signature will obviously have different user name and contact details, but we want to include the company logo (and there a several different variations of this that we want to standardise) and we want to standardise font, size, colour, layout etc.
Is there a reasonably straight-forward way of doing this?

    I'd never used (or even heard of) PowerShell before but have used batch files since the mid '80s and also done a little bit of other stuff with a few scripts. So there was a bit of a learning curve, but I got this working in a relatively short time with few problems. There were a few instances where some pairs of quote marks didn't come across across correctly when copying and pasting the text, but it was pretty easy to find those errors and change the quote marks to be correct (especially when the text editor has coloured highlighting).
    So, thanks for that. Well done!
