Transferring customized invoice template to another file

I have a client who is moving from a proprietorship to an incorporated company.  Because the company structure has changed, they are starting a new QuickBooks file with the new company.  However, they've customized the invoice template, and want to move it to the new file and just change the name and GST number.  Can this be done or do they have to recreate it?
