Welcome, Shannon...

Question...what are you writing in? Word?

If so, what I've done in the past is that each time a version is
published, I do a revision comparison and print the document as well as
save it as that version.

OTOH, with unlimited money and resources, you could implement a system
such as Documentum. I used it at a previous gig amd everytime I'd check
out a new document, wortk in it, save it, and check it back in, it
automaticaly saves the version as well as all previous versions (some of
my web pages were updated by an external system multiple times a day and
had hundreds of previous versions).
