Adding a Border to a Page

There may be times when you might want to put a frame around your finished pages with a border. Using Word, you can select from a number of preset options or create custom borders of your own design. You can have either line borders or art borders, or a combination of both.

Add a Border to a Page

Click the Format menu… and then click Borders And Shading.

Click the Page Border tab.

Click a preset border. All remaining steps, except the last one, are optional and completely dependent on the affect you are trying to achieve.

Select a line style for the page border.

Click the Color list arrow, and then select a color for the page border.

Click the Width list arrow, and then select the thickness of the page border.

Click the Art list arrow, and then select the border art style you want to apply.

Click border edges in the Preview window to deselect and select how many sides will encompass the border. By default, Word will frame borders on four sides.

Click the Apply To list arrow, and then select the option you want.

Click Options, and then specify the border margins you want.

Click OK.

Click OK.
