custom print size - image on canvas?

I'm printing an image 16.5" x 11", however, the print lab's instructions for doing so expose yet another unlearned PS skill. The instructions follow and I'd appreciate any help with how to do this in CS3:

"If you have images that are not sized to our standard print sizes, you will need to place them on a canvas in Adobe Photoshop to get the desired size. Example: a 14x30 image would be placed on a 20x30 canvas (white border) in Photoshop to get the custom print size. Please use the text tool in Photoshop and write in the white border "please trim print" to alert our technicians to trim the image for you."

Thanks for your help! John
