When choosing an image for your template you might want to consider...
Keep in mind that you have a lot more horizontal space than you have vertical space. You might want to make your template longer than it is tall. For example, if you're making a table with 8 rows and 3 columns, swap the rows and columns to make it a 3 rows and 8 columns instead.
What colors will pop out on your canvas background? Dark colors may not show up well.
Do you want a .jpg image or a .png image? Use the table below to help you decide.

Afterwards, follow the steps in the Creating your own template article to convert it into a template.
