Is there a way to visually customize a pre-made template in the editor?  I understand you can add items through the drag/drop menu and their respective settings, however not to the extent I'm looking for. The plaintext HTML from these offers little to work with as well.  
Lets use the "New Harbor" template as an example.  I'd like to add another ribbon-like visual that wraps around the entire body, however it doesn't seem like this is possible.  Am I better off going with building my own template from scratch, or is there a way to meet somewhere in the middle?

Hi there!

There are a couple of different options you can go with for what you are looking to do.  The first option would be to work with our awesome Service Specialists and have a custom template designed for you.  We can design and create a custom template based on your design requirements.  If you are interested in speaking with a Service Specialist, complete this form and someone from the team will be sure to reach out to you!

Although you do not have access to the template code for any of the templates in the Template Gallery, you can customize the templates using the Drag & Drop Editor and then you can save that version by using the 'save as template' feature in your account.  In this case, it sounds like you have tried that and are not able to accomplish what you are looking to do.  If you are HTML savvy, you can create your own template by dropping in your designs HTML into the Code Your Own template, which can be located at the top of the page when you click on 'create a new email' button.

Feel free to reach out with any questions.  I am always happy to help!
