Creative Ways to Use Borders
When you want to draw attention to a particular text or graphic element, you could use the usual square border. Or you can add much more interest to the page by thinking outside the box.
Quark and InDesign let you choose borders with multiple lines, thick lines, thin lines, broken lines, dots, arrows, and more. These programs also let you choose borders with rounded, inverted, and inset corners. Or you can make borders in geometric shapes like circles, octagons, stars, and bursts.
You can even make hand-drawn borders with the pencil tool. Or don’t use a border at all – just a drop shadow to set the piece apart from the rest of the layout.
