How to Apply a Custom Border to a Word Document
Adding a custom page border has always been an option in the previous Microsoft Word programs, and Word 2007 is no exception. Adding custom page borders is a similar process from Word 2003 with the exception of the new user interface Microsoft implemented in Word 2007. However, once you open the border dialogue box, you’ll see a nearly identical set of border settings.
Click on the “Page Layout” tab. This opens a new set of buttons and options associated with page layout, including the ability to add custom borders.
Highlight the text that you would like to create a border for. If you are making a border for the entire page, skip this step.
Click on “Page Borders” in the Ribbon above the document. This opens a new window where you can create a border.
Click on the “Page Border” tab if you’re adding a border to the entire page. Select the “Border” tab if you’re adding a border to text.
Click on the “Custom” option on the left side of the pane.
Customize the border by clicking on a side of the border in the “Preview” section and selecting the “Style,” “Color” and “Width" of the border. Repeat this step for each side to customize the border.
Click “OK” when finished to close the border setup window and create the border.
